Esurance is excited to announce the launch of Fuelcaster, a gas price predictor and the first of its kind in the industry.
As a company built to save, we’ve helped our customers save time, hassle, and money on car insurance since our inception. Now, with the launch of Fuelcaster, we hope to bring our signature time- and money-saving innovation to everyone. Fuelcaster is something that everybody can love — a free, easy-to-use web app that can predict whether gas prices will rise or fall tomorrow.
How to get a gas price prediction
To get a prediction for your area, just visit fuelcaster.com and enter your ZIP. Fuelcaster will display a “buy” or “wait” recommendation based on calculations regarding whether the price of gas is expected to rise or fall in the next 24 hours. It will also show nearby gas stations (up to 10) along with their current gas prices, so you can see the lowest price in your area. And once you decide which station to fuel up at, it’ll help you navigate there.
Fuelcaster uses data from GasBuddy, a well-known and trusted source of information, so consumers can feel confident that they’re getting rock-solid predictions about gas prices in their area.
Gas prices can vary by as much as a dollar within the same ZIP. Using Fuelcaster, you could save each time you fill up. Depending on how much you drive and where, this could add up to thousands of dollars over the course of a year. We think that’s pretty cool.
Though we’re confident in our predictions and prices, they’re not guaranteed. Gas prices are influenced by many factors and savings will vary.
From the get-go, our goal has always been to utilize technology to make car insurance faster and more efficient and save our customers money in the process. With the launch of Fuelcaster, we’re simply extending the benefits of our tech-savvy know-how to people who aren’t Esurance customers (yet).
We’ve changed the way people shop for and buy insurance, and now we’re helping change the way people shop for and buy their gas, too. If you’d like to spend less money on gas this year, give Fuelcaster a try. It’s free, it’s easy, and little by little, we’re pretty sure you’ll see the savings add up. Just go to fuelcaster.com and try it yourself.
