You probably don’t even realize it. But if you tend to get gas at the end of the week, you’re doing it wrong.
A lot of us get gas on Fridays or on the weekends as we take our road trips and to our errands. But Patrick DeHaan at Gas Buddy says that's the wrong strategy.
“Fill up Tuesday. Don’t fill up Sunday. The cheapest days across the country are generally early in the week,” DeHaan said.
That's because oil markets are closed over the weekend, so there's a price guarantee. DeHaan says if we all filled up during the week we could save $2 billion as a country. The average gas price in Houston today is $2.52 a gallon.
