Gas Buddy

Price: Free
Available: iPhone, Android, and Windows phones

Gas Buddy shows you gas stations near your location and their current prices, as reported by users. You can search by zip code or city and sort stations according to price and distance. Users who provide information are entered into a weekly $250 gift card giveaway, so not only can you save some money, you can also earn some if you’re lucky! However, one drawback is that the prices may sometimes not be accurate as they are user-generated. It’s still worth a try – especially because it’s free!

Gas Guru

Gas Guru gets their prices straight from the Oil Price Information Service, so you can rely on them to be accurate and consistent. The app has an easy-to-use layout and also provides information such as what other businesses are near each gas station. So, if you have plans to stop at a restaurant, laundromat, or some other shop on your way to or from getting gas, you can plan your road trips with the most efficient stops. Gas Guru also allows you to bookmark and save the information for the stations you visit most often.

Waze

Price: Free
Available: iPhone, Android, and Windows phones

Waze is another app that collects its data from its community of users, but it has more than just gas prices. You can also get real-time updates on information such as accidents, road hazards, and traffic jams. So not only do you get to save money with Waze but also a bit of your time and peace of mind!
