Shortcut to cheap gas

Finding cheap gas has become a kind of game itself, and GasBuddy can help act as your cheat sheet. This app that uses crowd recommendations to suggest the best places to fill up, essentially giving you a more efficient way than asking the neighbors about the best places they’ve found. Users can sort by octane (regular, midgrade, premium, diesel), distance and, of course, price. You can also check out the stations submitted to the app on a map, to see if it’s possible to make it to that cheaper fill-up on the fumes left in your tank. Free, for Android, iOS, Windows and BlackBerry.
