There are two things that people never seem to get tired of talking about, weather, and the price of gas.

Anytime I go on a road trip, I like to use GasBuddy to help me find the lowest prices along my route.

For example, let’s say I decide to go to Vancouver for the weekend. I’ll use the GasBuddy map function to see what prices are along my route. Above, I see that gas is $1.069/litre at Kamloops Costco, $1.129/litre in Abbotsford Costco and is $1.319/litre in downtown Vancouver. The difference in gas between Kamloops and Vancouver is almost 21%!

My plan of attack is to fill up in Kamloops, put in another half tank or so in Abbotsford, and avoid buying gas in Vancouver entirely. Putting in a few seconds of research using the GasBuddy app saved me around $30 in gas for this trip. Spending a few seconds to research prices is worth it.

  1. You are so frugal which is good but these things take time to research and some people like me already have a favourite gas station they go to. But good for you to find a bargain.
