As gas prices continue to skyrocket, it’s time to hunt down the best prices.

Gas Buddy is a pretty handy tool when you are looking to find the best options for filling up your tank.

Americans haven’t paid this much at the pump since 2008, amid calls to ban imports of Russian oil, so this problem won’t likely be going away anytime soon.

We have it a little better here, as opposed to bigger cities in the United States. San Francisco, hit $5 per gallon last week. Overall, prices across the U.S. have increased 11 cents over the last week or so.

Gas Buddy is also helpful when you are looking for specific things. Last week, I had a dangerously low front tire, and I swear it took me 15 minutes and several stops, to find a working air hose. They also tell you which places have restrooms, and which ones have a pay-at-the-pump option. These things come in handy if you are headed out on the road.
