Although car upkeep, insurance and fuel might feel like fixed costs, you can actually slash what you spend on your car without sacrificing safety or comfort. These 10 tips will help you save by spending less on gas, finding a mechanic you can trust, and snagging the best deal out there on insurance.
Don't settle for the corner gas station; shop around! Do you belong to BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, or Sam’s Club? Check the gas prices there. Warehouse clubs can have some of the best deals on fuel. Keep an eye out for supermarkets that sell gasoline. Your frequent-shopper card might entitle you to a discount. When you’re on the road, avoid stations near highways that often charge more.
