Frugal Friday - gas tip

It's Frugal Friday again and I actually have a tip this week!!

In this never ending gas price saga, I have found a couple of ways to get the best price in my area!

1 - Gas Buddy can help you locate the stations in your area that have the right price for you. Just click on your state and type in your zip code!
2 - I find that my local Sam's Club (about 1 mile from my house) is usually the cheapest but it's not always listed on gasbuddy.

On Monday when I filled up my van, Sam's was $.14 cheaper than the gas station just up the street.

The only downside to Sam's is if you're not a member you can't purchase gas there. But, in reality the membership is $40/year and I bet you save that much on gas in no time (I'm saving between $1.75 and $2.00 at each fill up - roughly every 8 days).

So, if you have a Sam's Club with a gas station near you, it's probably worth looking into their prices and comparing them with where you regularly purchase gas to see if they have a better deal.
