Gas prices have been steadily increasing amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and Americans shouldn’t expect them to drop anytime soon, experts say. In the meantime, check out these five apps available for iOS and Android devices to help your pocketbook.
GasBuddy, which has been around since 2000, is highly rated on the App Store for a good reason. The program claims if you get a free discount fuel card you’ll “never pay full price at the pump again.” The app gives you a map of the cheapest gas prices near you, and by using the free membership card you’ll save up to 25 cents per gallon. GasBuddy, which has more than 400,000 ratings averaging 4.7 stars, even alerts you to what amenities the nearby stations offer.
This one helps you save on more than just gas. According to the company, you can easily “get cash back on your everyday purchases, without changing anything about how you shop or live.” The app allows you to earn cash back on gas, groceries and restaurants by simply “checking in” on the app while at the establishment, or taking a photo of your receipt. You can save up to 25 cents on every gallon at major gas stations across the United States, and earn up to 45% cash back on over 17,000 restaurants and fast food places around the country.
