cheap gas at Walmart through Christmas!!

i get a weekly update from Clark Howard show and happen to see this on his website.

Wal-Mart gas promotion runs through Christmas Eve | www.clarkhoward.com

could be a good deal for RVers traveling around a bit for the next couple weeks.

Any one using the gasbuddy.com smart phone app... I have used their website to located good fuel prices on line for a couple years now.. When i finally get a "smart" phone i will be able to update fuel prices as well..

there are lots of ways to save money on fuel, you just have to run them down...

Thanks for the info, Carl, but the only Walmart around here that offers gasoline has a permanent lineup that reminds me of '73 in the US.

And while they are a few pennies cheaper, I can't stand long lineups.

i hear wa eh..

you use gasbuddy right.. ?? there is an app my son was showing me last week that is updated realtime showing traffic and gas prices in the area you are located.. it uses the GPS to get location..

it was cool to see as we traveled over I40 at exit 301 in NC seeing all the stopped traffic heading east to the coast.. his phone was showing the traffic problems. It also shows others running the app. we noting there was 2-3 other in the area as shown by a icon on his phone.. not sure of the name but i can get it is there is interest.

Should show up on a search at your App Store.

I found a traffic/gas/social media app called Waze that I just downloaded. It has several functions, the best of which is that it's hands-free. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
