GasBuddy Launches #KnowYourSpread Campaign to Help Drivers Save More


 Gas prices vary in 99.9% of every GasBuddy metro market in America

#KnowYourSpread Campaign to Help Prevent Motorist from Overpaying at the Pump

Gas prices vary dramatically from street corner to corner, and even more so between cities and states. Earlier this year, we found that we’re more likely to overpay for gasoline when prices are lower overall. Here are the top 10 cities with the widest price spread (the difference between the highest and lowest gas stations near you), making them places where you’re more likely to overpay if you’re not careful.
