Top 5 Car & Gas Savings Apps

While gas prices are under $3 now, it's still nice to know where the cheapest gas station is. The truth is, some gas stations vary in price as much as quarter in difference. That's about an extra $4 in fill up! Here are the top 5 gas apps for 2015.

Waze:

The popular crowdsourced navigation app lets you know how much you'll pay for gas as you travel, and it can direct you to the cheapest gas station. By going to its partner gas stations, the app offers "Waze-only" deals.

Gas Guru:

If you're into saving money on gas but not interested in doing any work, consider Gas Guru. The app draws its gas price information from the Oil Price Information Service, so the prices are always up to date. The Gas Guru app provides directions to the cheapest gas station near you.

Dash:

The vehicle information service tells you everything about your car -- and throws in where to get the cheapest gas for good measure.

Dash's tiny sensor connects to any car model made in 1996 or after, plugging in just underneath the steering wheel. The app provides useful driving information: What your "check engine" light means, how you're driving, and how much gas you're using.

The app uses an unnamed third-party party source for its gas price information -- it doesn't crowdsource the data.

Gas Buddy:

The app incentivizes people to post gas prices by offering a weekly drawing for a $100 gas card. GasBuddy gives users points every time they post prices. They need to report about six or seven gas prices to be eligible for the drawing.

MapQuest Gas Prices:

Yup, MapQuest is still around. And it has one of the best apps for finding cheap gas prices.

MapQuest lets you choose favorite stations and select your fuel grade, and then it directs you to the cheapest gas station in your area. But if you want its app to navigate you to the gas station of your choice, you'll also need the MapQuest GPS app.

Use these apps to help you find the best gas prices - whether you're traveling or staying local, it's nice to know you can save a few dollars while filling up your gas tank.
