It makes no sense to drive 10 miles to save a few cents on a gallon of gasoline. But smart gas shoppers pull into a station when they see a good price, even if their tanks are half-full. Typically, a few stations in your city consistently offer lower gasoline prices. Identify them, and stop by when other business takes you past their driveways. In unfamiliar territory, you can now shop for gasoline online. Web sites like GasPriceWatch.com post frequent updates for cities all along your travel route. The prices are likely to change by the time of your visit, but you'll get a feel for where the best deals are offered.
