When you plan a road trip, there are many things to consider. How much food to take, where you will stay or what luggage you should pack. However, some people forget to calculator how much gas they will need to buys. There are many options online and for smart phones that will help you determine the cost of fuel.

    I didn't know this existed but I should have! Very cool. We took more road trips last year than we ever have and my favorite tip is to use the GasBuddy app to find the cheapest gas near you. What a difference this can make on what you spend! Also, don't leave hungry... just like at home, breakfast is the most important meal! :)

    I've already used the AAA Fuel Cost Calculator, (http://fuelcostcalculator.aaa.com/) but it only goes from major cities. This one seems great if it will measure from where you actually are. I plugged in the trip I'm leaving for today. Good stuff to know!
