When summer rolls around, I find myself getting restless. Just a little twitch at first. But, as the season progresses, so does my desire to get outside. Summer is road trip season after all. And I’ve still got a lot of road to cover.

Sadly, it’s been several years since my last multi-day road trip. But those memories are still finely etched in my mind.

Skydiving (indoors!) in Vegas. Smelling the Great Salt Lake long before seeing it. Spotting a black bear cub while whitewater rafting in Jackson Hole. Eating A LOT of pizza in Chicago. And doing it all with my best friend by my side.

Back then, all we packed were some clothes, some tunes, and a paper (yes, paper) map. Smartphones and GPS were still years away.

But, in the modern world, we’ve got a few more road trip tools at our disposal, like Fuelcaster, the first-of-its-kind gas price predictor.

Fuelcaster gives road trips a modern makeover

With Fuelcaster, you just type in your ZIP Code to see whether gas prices are expected to rise or fall tomorrow. That way, you can decide whether it’s better to fill up today or wait. It’s just our secret blend of digital herbs and mathematical spices that allow us to see when you could save money at the pump (thanks to our friends at GasBuddy). Best of all, it’s free for everyone!

I visited fuelcaster.com to look up predictions for some of the top road trip destinations in the U.S. (a girl can dream, can’t she?). Hopefully all the “wait” predictions mean lower gas prices are just around the corner!
