Filling your tank up with gas can prove quite costly these days, but what day you fill your tank just may help you save a few bucks.
According to the fuel-savings app GasBuddy, Monday is actually the best day to save money on gas, and it’s particularly beneficial to hit the station in the mornings, since prices could start rising by the afternoon. Meanwhile, Fridays are the worst day to fill up your tank, likely because stations are trying to get a few more bucks from people looking to fill up before a weekend getaway. In fact, the app notes that those who normally fill up on Fridays can save between 20 and 30 bucks a year by switching to Mondays.
Now the best and worst days to fill up does depend on where you live. In Utah, Sunday is actually the best day for gas, while in Hawaii it’s Wednesday. As for the worst, there are 16 states where Saturday is the worst day to head to the gas station, while there are 12 where it’s even worse on Sunday, and in Utah, for some reason, it will cost you most on Tuesday.
