As people across the U.S. face higher and higher gas prices, savvy consumers are visiting DealPass to find new ways to lower their day-to-day living expenses and save money in their household budgets. DealPass, an online portal for Adaptive Marketing LLC membership programs, offers members and non-members alike the ability to compare gas prices instantly at fill-up stations in their local area.
With a simple click on the “Low Gas Finder” banner on DealPass, website visitors can find the lowest posted prices available in their hometown -- or anywhere they plan to be. They also have access to a wide range of savings offers through DealPass, including Featured Deals, Coupons and Special Offers that are updated throughout the month.
Gas prices are likely to stay high for the foreseeable future. Indeed, with emerging industrial countries like India and China increasing the demand for a finite supply of resources, there is a very real possibility that the era of low gas prices in the U.S. is coming to an end.
Higher energy prices have a ripple effect on the entire economy, including your household budget. DealPass therefore offers you a few tips to help you get the most mileage out of your fuel dollars:
- Carpool or take mass transit to work. The surest way to save money on gas is to buy less of it. Lowering the demand will also increase the inventory on hand, a scenario that, in most economic models, typically results in lower prices.
- Get to know a good mechanic. A well-maintained car can help maximize your gas mileage. A few things you can do are to make sure your tires are properly inflated, replace clogged air filters, and use the right grade of motor oil.
- Keep a steady pace. Hitting the gas or slamming on the brakes -- between stoplights, on highways, wherever -- can increase your gas consumption by up to 33%. Gradual acceleration and deceleration is better for your gas mileage (and your brake pads), and using cruise control on longer trips can improve your fuel efficiency as well.
- Plan ahead. Plot your errands before leaving the house to shorten the distance and frequency of your trips. Eliminate backtracking routes, combine supermarket trips with dry cleaner stops and pharmacy pick-ups, and, when it’s efficient, take care of errands during your daily commute.
- Lose excess weight. Every 100 pounds of extra cargo in your car can decrease your fuel efficiency by one to two percent. Take down the roof rack (which will also decrease aerodynamic drag), store Dad’s golf clubs and Mom’s bowling ball elsewhere, and remove unnecessary items from your trunk and backseat.
In addition to accessing gas-price comparisons and other special deals, DealPass visitors can join any of the website’s various low- or no-cost membership programs to save on home and family needs, entertainment and lifestyle interests, peace-of-mind benefits and much more — including gas cards good at national chains.
