How to Save The Most Money When Buying Gas in Illinois

 

I do have cards that save me pennies on the gallon, but my go-to gas savings plan is usually to avoid filling up on the weekend. Well, guess what? That tradition doesn't seem to hold up anymore.

According to gasbuddy.com;

 In 2021, the middle of the week became far more expensive to fill up than on Mondays or Fridays. While the weekend previously held the title for the most expensive prices, Wednesday now follows Thursday as the most expensive day to fill-up.

So if Thursday is the worst day to fill up in most states, when is the best day to fill up? Apparently, it's Monday. GasBuddy says that the best way to save money at the gas pumps in 2022 is to fill up your car on the way to work on Monday. Is anyone else a little shocked by that, or is it just me?
