Analysis: Late-weekend fueling indicates more savings

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Whether you drive a hybrid or SUV, you want the best deal on gas at the pump. Now a new data analysis may help you pick which day to fill the tank.

New numbers released from GasBuddy on Tuesday show in Arkansas you should fill up late into the weekend. The same is true for Missouri. See the GasBuddy chart for a comparison of the last four years by state.

According to GasBuddy's analysis, 65% of states saw lower prices during the weekend, including Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The data found very few states saved on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The company concluded "late-week or weekend fueling can result in the best savings for a majority of motorists."

GasBuddy states they track gas prices at over 140,000 stations in all 50 states.
