Summer is just around the corner, and when school lets out, it’s time to hit the road for summer vacations! But with the warm months comes a spike in gas prices, and considering how crowded airports are during the summer months, many people decide to drive rather than fly. Most Huntington Beach homeowners manage their lives from some kind of an electronic device, so why not apprise yourself of some apps that can help save you money at the gas pump? Here’s a quick look!
Gas Buddy: GasBuddy.com started out as a website that let users report and view fuel prices in their area. Now, Gas Buddy has apps for both iOS and Android devices, so the next time you’re looking for the cheapest gas station around you, simply give the icon a tap and let it do the work. Best of all, it’s totally free!
Waze or WHERE: To find the cheapest stations anywhere on your summer road trip, use a navigation app like Waze or WHERE. Waze is powered by community-shared gas prices, so users work together to share prices at the pump. WHERE works in a similar fashion, helping users find what’s nearby with real-time information and recommendations.
Fuel Log or Gas Cubby: Despite finding the cheapest gas around, if you’re still running through a tremendous amount and the gas station attendant knows you by name, maybe the issue is your car! Fortunately, apps like Fuel Log and Gas Cubby can help. Use them to track your car’s fuel mileage and efficiency, and if something seems off, maybe it’s time to visit your mechanic.
Car Trouble: You probably never thought you could diagnose a car problem from your mobile phone, but with Car Trouble, you can. The app will take you through a series of basic trouble-shooting questions, and based on your “yes” or “no” answers, the app can assist you with identifying a potential car issue.
