How to Ease Your Pain at the Pump!

The media was talking about the "$50 fill-up" like it was an anomaly just a few years ago. With the average national price for regular gas hitting $4 for the first time, a "$50 fill-up" these days probably means you still had a half-full tank when you pulled into the local Costco gas station!

Will the pain ever cease? Don’t count on it. If you are unable to just get rid of the car and hop on the city bus, consider taking the edge off soaring prices by using a credit card that offers gas rebates. Many offer 3-6% rebates; however, you could potentially save up to 10% if you are willing to be loyal to one brand of gas. As gas prices rise, credit card issuers are getting more and more aggressive about marketing these cards. So, be sure to shop around and find the most appropriate card for your personal situation.
