What’s the best day to fill your gas tank? Does it really matter which day you fill up the car? Apparently, it does.
According to a study by GasBuddy.com, prices vary predictably day to day. But over the course of a year, an average driver will only save $20 to $30 by gaming the system. USA Today reports the best time to fill up is Monday morning, and the worst day to do it is on Friday, which is a day most of us get paid.
GasBuddy says that it all comes down to supply and demand. Fewer people are getting gas on Mondays compared to Fridays. But even then, this isn’t a hard-fast rule, it depends on where you live. In most states, Monday was the best day to fill up on the cheaper end.
