My Three Favorite Apps to Find the Best Gas Prices

Fuel prices haven't been this low un years. That, of course, is spurring lots of RV sales. But there is still a big disparity between pricing at various stations as you travel around the country.

So having a reliable app to check prices as you travel is a big help.

Here are my Top Three Gas Price Apps:

GasBuddy is an old favorite and has been around for years but I still find it and gives you the most up-to-date gas prices wherever you may be in the U.S. or Canada. GasBuddy relies on users to update prices, who in turn have a chance to win $100 every day for adding prices. It also gives you a map so finding the lowest gas prices is easy. The app is free for all platforms.

Gas Guru is another handy app to have. It gives you the lowest and closest gas prices. With Gas Guru, you can even search for the lowest fuel prices based on grades – even diesel. That's a big help for those of us who dont want to pull off the freeway only to find a gas-only station. Ben there, Done that. With Gas Guru, uou can search using a list or you can view the app’s map to see your options. The app is free for Android and iOS and works with Apple Watch.

Using a smartphone’s location, the app called Fuel Finder will show you the closest gas stations and how much you can expect to pay at each. It, too, includes a map to make finding stations a breeze. You can even find stations that have ATMs or car washes. I have tried this app a few times and found that it does a great job, even though this one is not free. The app is $1.99 for Android.
