Gas prices have fallen a little over the last few weeks for Tamaqua and the rest of Eastern Pennsylvania. Gasoline prices normally decrease this time of year. Of course, many hope it continues to fall.

David Clemson said on Facebook, “If you notice though, Tamaqua has the cheapest prices around. If you travel to reading, Allentown and philly gas prices range from 10-20 cents more a gallon than the price in Tamaqua.”

A few popular ways to keep more money in your wallet are:
– Use gas station credit cards or discount cards. Most of the time, these cards also offer discounts on other store foods and merchandise. Although be aware that not all card discounts result in notably cheaper gas.
– Look for local deals, and don’t think your regular gas station is staying competitive.
– Make better efforts to carpool to work or share rides with friends.
– Use online gas-saving websites, like (GasBuddy.com) or (MapQuest Gas Prices), to keep track of local prices at the pumps.
– Use your smart phone. There are numerous gas-saving apps out there that can alert you to the cheapest gas prices nearby. You can even tell others about the cheaper rate. Some of these apps can also alert you when prices are on the rise, so you can fill up before things get real expensive. One popular app is (GasBuddy).
