Cheap Gas Locator Best Ways to Save Money
If you are searching for a cheap gas locator, look no further. Here is one of the best ways to save money.
I pulled into the gas station with my boys the other day. There were real long lines at this particular gas station that I frequent. As I pulled in, I noticed every pump was filled with a line except for one. There was no line, nobody was using it. So I took about a five extra second effort to turn my car around so the gas tank would face the pomp and went right on in.
I turned to my boys and told them that there are opportunities all around as if we would just take a little extra effort. As we plan our goals, or wishes, or whatever you want to call them, for the new year, I encourage you to look for opportunities to spend less and creative ways to save money, get out of debt and live.
There are many ways to do this if you just look around. Some of them may look to be inconvenient and not worth it. But if you were to change your thinking and attention just a little bit you will notice it is really easy to do. Every little bit of savings add up.
Here are the up to date national averages. And just to get you motivated to save, the one year forecast based on the current trends is included.
So many gas stations around town and they all have different prices. In a bit you will be able to use a cheap gas locator to help you find somewhere local for you to go.
Where we live in the Central California area, Chevron is the most expensive at about $3.00 per gallon.
And then there are places such as Valero and 76, around $2.60 to $2.70. At the cheaper end is Arco which we use and that is currently $2.67 which I filled up on today. You will notice there is a huge difference between the three levels.
Now you may be thinking, "Well it is only a couple of bucks extra a tank full." But as I am fond of saying, a couple of bucks and a couple of bucks continuously add up to a lot of bucks.
So for this one technique, by the end of the year you have an extra $100. What if you would have done that for all of 2009 and now have an extra $100 in your pocket? Right now, could you use the extra $100? Of course!
To help you, here is a cheap gas locator that you can use for your area. Just put in your zip code and click the green Go button.
Use it as a tool to find the gas station that is consistently cheaper and then consistently use it. The ARCO that I use is cheaper for two reasons. Cash is only accepted so they do not have to pay the extra credit card transaction fees. This means they can bring the price down for me a bit cheaper.
And second, they make their money anyway off the snacks and drinks inside the store. Candy bars cost a dollar. Beverages are 90% profit for each one that you buy. Well guess what, I do not buy those things.
I go for the gas, pay cash, and move on with my dollar or two of savings. Again, it is one of the best ways to save money.
Now it is your turn. Use the above cheap gas locator to find a station that suits you or use your eyes as you are traveling around town. Begin saving now and reap the benefits for months and years to come.
