Save money on gas!

Speedway gas stations started its Speedy Rewards program a couple of years ago, and many people have enjoyed racking up points since then. Earning points can get you anything from free snacks to free gas cards to gift certificates to several restaurants. The nicest thing about signing up for the program is saving $0.05/gallon during the summer! Because we're members, whenever we fill up at a Speedway gas station, we get $0.05 off every gallon of gas we pump. If gas is priced at $2.90/gallon, we pay $2.85.

With gas prices falling, right now, it's extra nice! And, even though the prices at the pump aren't as low as we would all like them to be, every little bit helps. So, stop by a Speedway and sign up now to enjoy the savings.

Some other tips for saving gas:
  • Make sure your tires are inflated properly and balanced.

  • If possible, set the cruise!

  • According to www.fueleconomy.gov, for every 5 mph over 60, you pay an extra $0.20 per gallon! Think about it . . . if prices are $3.00/gallon and you consistently drive over 60 mph, you could easily be paying $3.20 or more per gallon. Reducing your speed could save you a bundle!
