CHICAGO, Ill (WIBW) A study released Tuesday by GasBuddy that tracked trends over the last four years showed what day of the week saw the cheapest gasoline price.
The analysis showed a wide variation of the cheapest day to get gas, but not every day was well-represented.
“Surprisingly, many states see the lowest gasoline prices for the week during the weekend, which may come as a surprise to many motorists,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com.
Analysis showed that 65% of states saw lower prices during the weekend than the week, which included Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. GasBuddy’s data also found that very few states saw Tuesday or Wednesday as the best day to fuel up.
GasBuddy’s analysis concludes that generally late-week or weekend fueling can result in the best savings for a majority of motorists.
GasBuddy tracks gasoline prices at over 140,000 gas stations in all fifty states and offers a free smartphone app which helps find the lowest gasoline prices in their area.
