GasPriceWatch.com and GasBuddy.com are two websites that are designed specifically to help us find where we can get the best deals on gas. Both of these sites allow users to search for their area’s local gas stations. The sites provide prices for regular, midgrade, premium and diesel fuel for each station listed. For each station, it also provides the address and GoogleMaps link for drivers to find stations easily. The sites give nationwide information regarding rising/lowering gas prices and give stats about each state’s gas prices.
So how do these sites get all their information? From us. What GasPriceWatch.com likes to call spotters, these web sites get their information from people spotting the changing gas prices at stations and entering it into the sites. If you become a “spotter” for either site, you can compete for points (from how many price changes you spot) and be eligible for various prizes.
If you happen to be either an Android or iPhone user, Gasbuddy.com has its own app that allow users to search for cheap gas. GasPriceWatch.com is expected to have apps out by August.
With all this helpful information at our fingertips, there’s no reason not to be on the hunt for cheaper gas.
