This is the question that keeps landing in my inbox: “How can I save gas?” Okay. Recently, I have a pain every time I stop with the pump.

Remember that Sam’s Club and Costco offer fuel discounts, but you have to pay the annual fee. Tap or click to see if it’s worth the savings..

Or maybe you need a reliable way to find the best petrol prices near you. It’s frustrating to see a dime cheaper for gas a mile away after it’s full. Tap or click here for the best app to scout the lowest price..

When the tank is full, there is a way to make it last a little longer. Anyone can do this with the help of the GPS app.

Algorithms are good at predicting

In most cases, if you drive to the same few places, you may not tell you how to get there using the mapping app. You can use it to find traffic, road closures, and better routes.

Traffic is more than just frustrating. It is also bad for fuel economy. Each time you step on the brakes, you use more power to move the car back. These burn fuel and reduce miles per gallon. High-traffic driving also means increased idle time and increased wear on brakes and engine components.

It’s easy to open the navigation app and see what’s happening now, but what if you want to see what’s expected tomorrow or next week?

Whether you’re using Apple Maps or Google Maps, you can get fairly accurate traffic forecasts for future dates based on the normal circumstances of that date and time. You can then fine-tune your departure time to find the ideal time to get out on the road.
