Chapa’s tips for saving on gasoline

One absolute necessity, that is not food- related, is gasoline. Without it, how would cars function and get us to our destinations? One problem we all face is the high cost of gasoline.

To help you save money on gas, I can give you a handy tip that could help you keep some money in your pocket. Look at loyalty programs.

I work at a Kroger store, and it has a gasoline station, as do most of their stores. Loyal customers and Kroger employees can save money on gasoline by using the Kroger Plus Card issued by Kroger stores.

According to the Kroger website, “the fuel program allows you to receive savings of up to $1 off per gallon on fuel purchases at Kroger, and 10¢ per gallon at participating Shell Stations. You may redeem 100 fuel points at participating Shell Stations for a 10¢ per gallon savings. And you may redeem up to 1,000 fuel points in a single fill-up at Kroger for up to $1 off per gallon.”

In order to get the fuel points, you need to spend at least $100 at Kroger in one month using your Kroger Plus Card. Not everyone spends $100 in one shopping trip, but the points can accumulate over the course of the month.

A heads to up to those who may decide to use this tip; certain items do not give you fuel points, such as beer and cigarettes.

This simple tip can help you save money on gasoline, especially if you travel long distances to get to school or school.
