Saving on Gasoline at Your Business

Jun 29, 2008
Are you currently a business owner and you're fed up with paying the ridiculously high gas prices? I'm sure all of you have said yes to this answer and if you said no, well, I don't know what to say about that one. Businesses can be successful and some can just be the worst idea ever. Regardless if your business is profitable or it's losing money, you want to find ways to save money in every aspect. Today, I'm going to show you how you can save on gas at your business.

If you business consists of a fleet of a thousand vehicles or just one, I'm sure you have to fill up the car every once in a while. Instead of paying full price, there are ways to save up to ten percent! I know it sounds too good to be true but it really isn't. The way to save is by applying for a business gas credit card. If you're not familiar with this type of card, I'll explain to you how it works.

A gas credit card is just like any other card on the market. You simply pay at the pump with your card and depending on how the card works, you'll either get your rebate back on your statement or sometimes you may get it back in gift cards, it all depends on the company and what gas station you go through.

Most cards on the market today will allow you to save up to ten percent per gallon. This is a lot seeing that gas is at four dollars a gallon, that's a forty cent per gallon savings. It adds up really quick. When you do apply for a card for your business, you will want to look out for a few things when it comes to the application process. You will quickly find out that there are cards out there designed for every gas station and there are cards designed solely for one gas station. Many have found that the card for one gas station is generally better because it offers better rebate rates. Make sure that you do your research before you just apply for the first card you see, it can cost you in the long run.

In order to maximize the most savings for your business, you're going to want to make sure that you treat this card like any other credit card out there. You'll want to pay it off in full each month so that you can avoid the interest rates. If you can do this, you will have an interest free loan. If you don't think you're capable of doing this, you may want to avoid getting a card altogether.

A gas card can really save you a lot of money if you use them right and especially if you have a big fleet of vehicles. Remember that every penny counts in the long run. Simply do some research and ask other business owners what they use and go from there.
