But what if you want to know where to get the lowest gas prices in your neighborhood? Local 5 News explains how to use the GasBuddy website to find out.
First, go to www.gasbuddy.com
Then, click on the "Find Gas" pull-down menu in the top left and select "Search"
This will take you to the form that allows you to search gas prices by location
You can type in your full address, just your city and state, or just your zip code, and GasBuddy will show the prices of gas stations near you.
If you want a different fuel type — regular or diesel, for example — or gas station brand, you can also limit the search results to those stations.
