GAS prices are rising and American consumers are desperate for ways to save money while getting the gas they need.
It’s possible to pay less for expensive gas as inflation rates soar, experts say, but it all depends on where you look.
One way to save at the pump is to stock up at warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam’s Club or BJ’s Wholesale Club.
Warehouse clubs typically sell fuel for 30 cents per gallon less than regular gas stations, and chains often offer coupons and membership discounts to help soften the blow even further.
Warehouse club gasoline sales have long been an attractive perk of club membership, building customer loyalty with their ever-lower prices.
“People search for clubs because of the gasoline,” analyst Michael Baker told an ABC affiliate.
“It’s in the nature of American consumers to go out of their way to lower gas prices.”
In addition to saving money, many club members can also earn cash back.
For example, consumers who use the Costco Anywhere Visa card get 4% cash back for filling up at any gas station.
Gas station rewards cards and signing up for gas station apps could also help customers save 5 to 10 cents on a gallon.
However, many Americans are beginning to figure out the trick, leading to long lines at club warehouse pumps.
Insider reported that many consumers have already signed up to join Costco just for cheaper gas.
