GasBuddy is hosting a $10,000 gas giveaway

The #BetterWithABuddy sweepstakes comes as GasBuddy reaches 100 million app downloads since 2010.

St. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Did someone say free gas?

That would be GasBuddy. The tech company is celebrating its 100 million app downloads with a gift to its “buddies” through the #BetterWithABuddy contest.

GasBuddy is a technology company that helps users find the best gas prices near them and save with their fuel rewards program and now they’re giving everyone the chance to earn hundreds of dollars in free gas. The draw opened on August 4th and ends on August 18th, so you still have time to try your luck. One hundred users will receive $100 and one lucky winner will win $1,000 in gas money. Here’s how to enter:

  • Visit and follow @GasBuddy on Instagram

  • Comment on GasBuddy’s #BetterWithABuddy post explaining why your road trip buddy is the best travel co-pilot

  • Tag your road trip buddy in the comments section and use the hashtag #BetterWithABuddy

You can be eligible for a $1,000 prize when you submit a video entry telling GasBuddy one of your best road trip stories. Click here for more details.

In the US, the average price of gas topped $5 a gallon this summer, according to a GasBuddy survey. The tech company conducted a study that showed about 70% of travelers said high gas prices affected their travel plans, so they hope the #BetterWithABuddy sweepstakes will lighten the load for those who want to travel soon.

In the Tampa Bay area, gas prices have dropped 15.9 cents per gallon, GasBuddy announced Monday, to an average of $3.54 per gallon. That’s a slightly larger drop than the average for Florida, where gas prices have dropped 14 cents per gallon, AAA reports.
