As Gas Prices Skyrocket, Experts Weigh In on 7 Ways to Save Money

The latest figures from Patrick De Haan, petroleum analyst at GasBuddy, suggest continued pain at the pump.

He expects gas prices across the U.S. to continue rising throughout the spring and averages for the entire year to be at $4.00, surpassing all previous records.

However, with rising prices comes the opportunity to save big on fuel costs. We spoke to experts on the seven best ways to save money at the pump.

Drive Responsibly

Driving responsibly may not sound like the most exciting way to save money on gas, but it has been proven effective. Before you think about slamming the accelerator or weaving between lanes, consider the cost, literally.

Price Shop Where You Get Your Gas

Comparing fuel prices can result in considerable savings, and several apps can make this process easier. Taylor Palmer, who is on the road full-time in her recreational vehicle, highly recommends GasBuddy to shop prices.

Keep Your Vehicle Well Maintained

Routine car maintenance is another area to look if you want to increase fuel efficiency and save money, says Michael Melwick of Moto Transportation, a trucking company.

Andrea Woroch, a consumer savings expert, recommends using a gas rebate credit card and other cash back apps to get money back on fuel purchases.
