Smartphone Apps Can Help Ease Pain At The Pump

During these tough economic times that our country has been facing, one part of our pocket book seems to get hit hard relentlessly, day in and day out.  We keep getting hit at the gas pump and it doesn’t show a sign of letting up.  The sad fact about this is that to be reasonable we really don’t have a choice in the matter; to keep business flowing and life in general, we must pay whatever it takes.  The mindset that “every little thing counts” begins to settle in and we with our human instinct seek out tools to minimize the damage done to our wallets.  In our modern world there is no shortage of tools.  One of the greatest tools we have is our smartphone, which gives us the capacity to search out other tools.  Some of the tools in our digital toolbox are Apps.  There are many Apps that are available to us on the Google Play Store and the Apple Store.

There is an App called Gas Mileage Calculator, which allows the user to enter the mileage, number of gallons and cost per gallon from their last fill-up and press the calculate button to see the results.  Another great App is the GasBuddy, which allows you to find the cheapest gas prices within a certain range of your GPS location. Saving a few cents here and there doesn’t seem like much, but when that is repeated many times throughout the year it does add up significantly.  A third App that can be very useful is
Fill ‘er Up.  The Fill ‘er Up app calculates your gas expenses.  To use it enter the trip distance, fuel price, mileage(mpg) and the number of travelers in the car and it calculates the amount of gas that is needed, total cost, and cost per head.

I think we can all learn a lesson from economic downturn by becoming frugal and using the tools at our disposal to generate savings in our everyday lives.  We at Phone Savvy hope you enjoy and find useful the Apps we have brought to your attention.
