Pay Attention to the Price of Gas

As I drove to work yesterday morning the price of gasoline was 95 cents.  On my way to a meeting at lunchtime, the price was down to 91 cents.  That’s a four cent drop in a few hours.  Why the drop?  I have no idea.  I assume it’s because more people fill up with gas in the morning, so that’s when the price is highest.  As demand drops during the day, they lower the price.

Keep an eye on your local gas station at different times of the day, and on different days of the week.  If you notice a pattern, use it to your advantage.  If the price is lower in the middle of the day, that’s when you should fill up.  If it’s lower on a Tuesday as compared to a Friday, again, that’s when you should fill up.

There is usually a pattern, so use it to your advantage to save money.
