Where to spot the cheap gas

Who doesn’t love cheap gas? It’s not a secret that gas is cheap in the USA, although Americans at times believe they’re paying too much. Coming from Europe, American gas is always cheap. Roughly speaking, when a gallon of gas is $7.64 in Denmark, it’s only $2.90 in the USA. Nevertheless, gas is still a cost. Using GasBuddy.com, I can estimate how much I’m going to spend on gas. I use the website when I’m planning my trip, and I use the app when I’m on the road. It can pinpoint me to the cheapest gas. I’m not a slave to GasBuddy, but it’s nice to get an indication of the cost. I’d rather spend my money on food than on fuel.

As of 2018, GasBuddy is an U.S. exclusive app, which means I can’t access the site and app from an IP-address in Europe.

Got miles?

I’ve just realized that for the past 5 years I have road tripped a total of 20,722 miles, most of them with me in the driver’s seat. Yet, I’m not tired of driving. Hard to describe, but the feel of cruising the open road is just rejuvenating. The photo is from Highway 50 in Nevada, also known as The Loneliest Road in America.
