The gas prices have many people upset and wondering what they can do to save more money on their gas purchases. One way to begin is by finding the least expensive place for purchasing gas. I recently downloaded the “GasBuddy” on my iPhone. This application uses GPS to find the best gas prices within a reasonable distance from my current location. The prices can be sorted on distance from my location or based on the price of the gas per gallon.
Another great way to save would only apply if you have a Kroger grocery store in your area. If you regularly purchase your groceries from here, you can receive the following savings on gas by earning points:
There are three ways to earn Points in Kroger stores:
1. Spending on Groceries (normal exclusions apply): $100 in Groceries = 100 Points
2. Double Gift Card Points (normal exclusions apply): $50 in Gift Cards = 100 Points
Once you have 100 points, you earn 10 cents off per gallon for that fill-up when you purchase your gas from the Kroger or participating Shell stations. Kroger also offers another 5 cents off per gallon of the purchase of gas when the purchaser uses their 1-2-3 Rewards Mastercard. 15 cents off per gallon is a pretty good savings. At today’s rates of around $3.50 per gallon, 15 cents off is nearly like getting a 5% discount.
