I saw gas on the map for $1.68 at Gulf Freeway and S. Wayside, $1.78 at the H-E-B at Barker Cypress and 290. But $2.79 inside the loop? That’s a huge difference. Be sure to follow the Cheap Gas widget at Houston on the Cheap to save on your next fill up.
If you’re not familiar with the widget, you can search by zip code to find the cheapest gas in your neighborhood or city. The gas widget [labeled Fuel Up] on the top navigation bar is your go-to source for saving money on gas. Just search by zip code here.
Just quickly browsing the gas map, I also found high pricing at $2.79/gallon at San Felipe and W. Loop South and $2.69/gallon at Highway 6 and Park Row. Then I found two stations downtown priced at $1.95/gallon & $2.49/gallon just blocks apart. Big difference! It definitely pays to do some research.
Head online for the interactive map here. Then click on the price to see the gas station name and address.
