5 Ways to Find Cheap Gas

Do you like getting screwed on the regular by OPEC & Co.? Yeah, I don't either and I'm not that guy who drives a Hummer and then complains about how awful gas prices are. Well I'm here to help. Here are five ways you can find the cheapest gas around without putting in much time or effort.

2) Visit websites that will let you search by zip for gas prices and view locations on a google maps type interface.
