    road-trip routers come with gas station locations and date-stamped fuel
    prices along the route. While it's impossible to nail exact pump prices
    from day to day with costs changing so rapidly (fuel prices along a sample
    route were up to seven days old), AAA does its best by getting numbers at
    more than 110,000 stations across the U.S. directly from the Oil Price
    Information Service (OPIS), which gets its prices from selected gas
    purchases at America's gas stations.
  • Use a mobile app. While apps that rely on "user data," like Gas Buddy, can include flat-out-wrong data, it's getting
    easier to find reliable information—especially in urban areas where the crowdsourcing
    is more likely to be accurate. Gas Buddy also rewards its community
    members with a weekly $250 gas gift-card prize—the more gas prices you
    report the more likely you are to win. Apps like FuelFrog allow you to track your mileage to keep track
    of gas prices in your city and your car's gas efficiency over time.
