If you’ve ever wondered whether the gasoline was cheaper at the gas station a mile away, then the free Cheap Gas! app is for you. It updates prices at least every few hours, so you can always get a quick snapshot of prices at gas stations near you.
The Cheap Gas! app works on both the iPhone and the iPod Touch. On the iPhone, it uses geo-location, which is great if you’re in your car driving around for gas. On the iPod Touch, enter your zip code to identify your approximate location.
In addition to finding inexpensive gasoline, the Cheap Gas! app tells you how far each gas station is from you. It can also create a map with turn-by-turn directions. There are several gas stations about the same distance from my house, so I can see the Cheap Gas! app getting quite a work out!
Be sure to check out all the posts in my 30 Days of Money-Saving Apps series. Don’t have an iPhone or an iPod Touch? I think by the end of this series, you’ll find enough ways to save money to buy one! Or, you can use Swag Bucks and redeem them for an iPhone or iPod Touch (or gift cards or DVD players or so much more!).
Have you tried out the Cheap Gas! app? I’d love to hear about your experiences.
