The average American spends about $2,000 a year on gas and motor oil. Filling up your tank can make a major dent in your wallet, and while there are some things you can do to limit your gas usage (like accelerating more slowly or cutting back on air conditioning), the most effective way to slash your gas bill is to take steps to score cheap gas.

Read on to discover the best ways to get cheap gas in your area, and check out the interactive tool at the end of this page to immediately find the lowest gas prices near you.

  • GasBuddy–This app is the best way to find cheap gas near you. It’s a crowdsourced app that allows users to upload the prices they see at pumps, so you can see the latest prices in your area. The app incentivizes users to be active with updating local prices by hosting a weekly drawing for a $100 gift card and giving active users points for each time they post prices.
  • Sign up for a grocery store perks program–A lot of grocery stores have their own gas stations and give their shoppers points they can use toward fuel discounts. The Kroger Shopper’s Card is one of our favorites for earning major discounts to score cheap gas.
  • Join a gas station rewards program–Many gas stations have their own loyalty rewards programs that can save you 5-10 cents per gallon off their listed prices. Check with your favorite gas station to see if they have a rewards program you can sign up to use.
