Also www.gaspricewatch.com and www.gasprices.mapquest.com and www.automotive.com finds the cheapest gas near you. www.aaa.com/fuelfinder gives you fuel prices at 85,000 gas stations across the country and can be traced within 3, 5 or 10 miles of your home and are updated every few days.  The Department of Energy site www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/gasprices provides a best price comparison by city. It also provides revised gas mileage estimated for models going from 1985.
 
Join a warehouse club like Bj’s Wholesale or Costco or Sam's Club which can afford to sell gas for less profit than regular gasoline stations.

The federal government has a fuel guide which lists the vehicles that offer the best gas mileage. Find it at www.fueleconomy.gov. Buying a model that stretches your gas budget will save you thousands over the years.

Log on also to www.aaafuelcostcalculator.com from the American Automobile Assoc website were it will also tell you exactly how much you will spend on gas by entering your destination and your car model into the calculator.
