DAT offers a free mobile app that could save you money by finding the cheapest nearby fuel. The Fuel Prices function on the MyDAT® Trucker mobile app uses GPS to locate the nearest truck stops and lists current prices, distance to the truck stop and a list of amenities offered. That could save you some serious cash.The most recent Highway Statistics from the Federal Highway Administration show that combination trucks (tractor-trailers) consume an average of 11,310 gallons per year. Here are some other advantages:
- Fuel prices are updated every 6 hours.
- Information can be stored locally on your phone, so you can access the most recent updates even if you’re out of cell phone range.
- Results can be sorted by lowest price, shortest distance, or the name of the fueling station. You can also specify which direction you’re traveling and the interstate highway you’re on.
- The app is free!
