With unrest still bubbling in the oil-producing Middle East, it's time for a reminder on how to save money when filling up--on where and how to get the cheapest gas prices.
These three iPhone apps let you report gas prices and share in the love from other drivers, so you'll spend less:
GasBuddy is our favorite app for finding the cheapest gas prices on the go. As a community member you work with others to update current gas prices. This helps everyone save on gas. In return for helping out, every time you report on gas prices, you earn points that go towards the weekly gift card giveaway worth $250. GasBuddy is 99 cents and is currently available in the iTunes App Store.
GasBook has been featured on CNN and is another free iPhone app that provides the latest local gas prices for all grades of gasoline. This app offers more features than some of its competitors: it has a fuel log and the ability to bookmark your favorite gas stations. GasBook is free and is currently available in the iTunes App Store.
Local Gas Prices
Local Gas Prices is a simple app that helps locate the cheapest fuel prices locally. It displays prices for regular, plus, premium, and diesel. Local Gas Prices was developed by the same company that provides the top-ranking Google Gadget for finding local gas prices. Local Gas Prices is free and is currently available in the iTunes App Store.
