As travel nurses, I know that many of you will be hitting the road for an awesome summer assignment. As with any road trip, planning and budgeting is always a concern. One topic on everyone’s mind is gas prices. “Where do I get the best gas prices?” It is so frustrating to see a gas price at one station, pull in, fill up, head out and see cheaper prices at the next gas station.
Well, now there are apps that you can download on your phone that will actually help you find the best prices on gas. Theses apps allow you to search by city, state or zip code. Put in your location and these apps will not only show all the gas stations near you but the gas prices as well for each station, removing the guess work and frustration.
A few to check out are GasBuddy, Fuel Finder, Smart Fuel and Cheap Gas. As with anything, I recommend that you use more than one app to get the most accurate information.
