Best Gas Price Hacks to Save Money 

Remember when everyone thought 2022 would be the best year yet? Hardly anyone thought the economy might fall apart. However, here we are and inflation has sent prices soaring for everything, including gas.  

Hacks to Save Money on Gas

Use Gas Rewards Credit Card

When you get a gas rewards credit card, you can earn points and cashback when you make gas purchases. You have the Chase Freedom card, which can earn 5% cashback. The American Express Blue Cash Preferred card offers unlimited 3% cashback.  

Use Apps to Find Cheap Gas

Free apps like GasBuddy, Upside, Drivvo, or similar fuel-centric apps can help you find cheap gas. While saving money on gas is difficult, you can start saving using gas apps. People need gas because it's part of their expenses, so it's best to try these apps and see how much you can save in a month. 

Check Your Tire Pressure

Did you know you can boost gas mileage by checking your tire pressure? According to the US Department of Energy, you can increase gas mileage by 3%. If you keep your tire pressure in check, you can save a few cents weekly. However, most car owners only check their tire pressure when their indicator light turns on. 


Whether you are a college student or working at an office, the best way to save money on gas is to carpool with someone. You can drive for one week, and your friend or colleague can drive the week after. Or you can split the money, helping you save money for other essentials.
