We've Got Gas

Gas prices are near all-time highs, and consumers were taking notice during Week 17 (04/23). GasBuddy.com and GasPriceAlert.com, two sites that claim to find the lowest gas prices in your neighborhood, each had visits from a half-million price-conscious drivers for the week. We can’t really vouch for the reliability of their offerings, so investigate at your own risk.

For more comprehensive information about ways to save at the pump, over 250,000 people checked out FuelEconomy.com, which is jointly run by US Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. The site provides tips to improve gas mileage, news on the latest alternative energies, and MPG info on pretty much any car on the market. That’s how we learned that the Honda Insight gets 66 miles per gallon while the Hummer H3 gets 17.
