Save Money When Buying Gas

Have some Easter or Memorial Day travel plans coming up? David Krekeler found this interesting.

I just read a USA Today article by Nathan Bomey that explains how you can save money by buying your gas on the best days.  In Wisconsin, the best day to buy gas is Tuesday, while the worst or most expensive day is Sunday.

This all made sense after I thought about it.  On Sunday, all those Illinois tourists are gassing up and heading south, so naturally stations would want to be charging their highest prices that day.  I am not sure why Tuesday is the best day to buy, pricewise, but maybe some of those Illinois drivers are delaying their departure.

In most states, the most expensive day to buy gasoline is Friday.  That makes sense, since people are gassing up and heading out for the weekend.  But in Wisconsin the most expensive gas is usually available on Sunday.
