Helpful way to save at the gas pump

29 September 2010

While facing tough economic times, who isn’t trying to find ways to save money on their vehicle costs? I sure am! I came across this interesting site, www.gaspredictor.com and thought it would be resourceful for anyone who is interested in additional ways of saving money in regards to daily vehicle expenses.

The daily Gas Predictor Newsletter, which provides an amazingly accurate prediction of the next day’s retail gas prices in the U.S., is now one third off the original price. Every business day, subscribers know whether the price of gas is going up or down tomorrow, so they always know when to fill up and when to hold off.

GasPredictor.com has an amazing success rate of over 99%. Their predictions of retail gas prices in 21 cities across the U.S., and for the U.S. as a whole, have only been wrong eight times since they began daily publication of their “Gas Predictor” in November, 2008.

While subscribers only save a dollar or two at a time with each successful prediction, they can now realize those savings for a trifling cost. It is now possible, and in fact it has already happened, that a subscriber could save the cost of an annual subscription in one well-timed fill-up. “The whole idea,” explains Chuck Bonneer, GasPredictor.com’s lead analyst, “is that our subscribers never feel the frustration of driving past a gas station with newly reduced prices, but they can’t take advantage because they just filled up the day before. With these new lower prices, it’s not just a fun thing, it’s a real money saver.”

Subscribers can also save on gas when the price goes down. If the price is going down tomorrow, Gas Predictor will let them know that they should buy gas tomorrow rather than filling up today.

Cities served by local Gas Predictor Newsletters are Boston, Atlanta, the Nashua/Hudson area of New Hampshire, New York City, Long Island, Raleigh, Tampa, Orlando, Chicago, Houston, Kansas City, St. Louis, Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Portland (OR), Seattle, and Tacoma. There is also a free edition that covers the U.S. as a whole. More local editions are being added all the time, but only for localities within the 48 contiguous United States.
