While gas prices are starting to slip from the nearly $4.00 national average, they are still quite high, and no one knows this more than an RVer. Whether you are towing your camper or driving your car, when you are filling up at the gas station and those numbers keep on spinning by, you wonder if there was cheaper gas just around the corner. Well, you can take that guess-work away with the help of a very useful website.
Gasbuddy.com is a great resource for any driver, but it will come especially useful to RVers who are driving through new areas without the knowledge of knowing where the cheapest gas in town usually is. It works like Google Maps or Mapquest, all you have to do is enter the ZIP code into the box and it will bring up the gas prices in the area. There is an iPhone app also.
The only snag will be that it posts the prices from the last 48 hours, so there may be a small dip or rise in price, but it is great at giving you a general idea of which stations offer the best prices. Next time you are in a new town while going across the country, this website will become an invaluable tool to help save you a little green during the busy travel season. You can even try using it in your home town, it is very accurate as well.
So do not worry about not always getting the best fuel price, just remember to keep making those family memories by enjoying the RVing lifestyle. Keep camping and do not let the summer pass you by. And while you are out and about, feel free to stop by Pennsylvania’s largest tow-able travel trailer dealership, Lerch RV.
