Find the best gas rate in town with GasBuddy.com

by Kate Currin

The free GasBuddy.com app for Android is a fabulous concept. Basically, the app gives you a rundown of gas prices by grade according to your location. No more driving around town wasting gas to save a few bucks!

Search prices by city or ZIP. Or, simply tap the Find Gas Near Me selection. If available, the app provides prices for regular, mid-grade, premium or diesel by tab. The listings provide address and distance from station. Hit the Sort button to arrange by price or distance. You can also see gas station and prices on a map view.

GasBuddy.com relies on users to report prices of gas, so not all stations have current listings. In the app's search preferences, you can choose to show all stations or only display stations with current prices. This makes it easier to find the cheapest gas around. You can also choose search settings for fuel type and distance.

The app also offers some helpful features of individual gas stations like pay-at-pump convenience, restrooms, ATMs and station photos. Users can also add photos, in addition to reporting gas prices.

Overall, the app design is visually appealing, intuitive and super easy to use. GasBuddy.com is perfect for your weekly hunt to fill up your gas tank for cheap or to find the best price on a road trip.
