General Budget Buying [Frugal for Life]

Days of the week:

Kelli Grant, from smartmoney.com claims that Thursday, before 10 A.M. is the best time to purchase gas. Why? weekend demand is high, says Jason Toews, co-founder of GasBuddy.com. Prices usually swing upward on Thursdays as travelers fuel up to head out the following day. By hitting the pump before 10 a.m. (when many station owners change their prices), you’ll beat the rush and the price jump.

Also, cooler temperatures result in denser fuel whereas afternoon/evening gas has expanded after an all-day bake.
