Are you looking for different ways to cut the cost of gas? We’ve gathered a few tips to help you out! Continue reading to learn more…



Skip the premium option. Higher-octane gas isn’t beneficial (or even necessary) in most cars…therefore, you’re throwing away 20 to 40 cents per gallon!  Instead, use regular-grade gasoline unless your car’s manufacturer specifically requires a higher-grade.

Drive less. Easier said than done, right? Not true! You should consider carpooling (whenever possible), taking public transportation, or walking to your destination. Even the smallest efforts count!

Avoid gas stations near the highway. Studies show that these “conveniently located” gas stations can cost you up to $.15 more per gallon!




Combine errands and trips. You should strategically time your trips to the pump. Instead of making a special trip to the gas station (and using up fuel), make it a point to fill up whenever you do your grocery shopping or run errands!




Unload your vehicle of extra weight. If you’re storing heavy items in your trunk or backseat…your wallet will pay for it! Additional weight in your vehicle will eat up extra miles per gallon of gas.




Use a Rewards Credit Card. Every time you use your SeaComm Visa Platinum, you earn points that can be used for rewards…and now you can even redeem your points for cash back! Click here to learn more, and remember your SeaComm Visa the next time you’re at the pump!
