The cost of gas can really rack up but believe it or not, there are a few tricks that you can utilize to help save you some extra money.

It turns out, the day of the week that you decide to fill up your gas tank correlates to how expensive it is.

Studies have shown that the best time to fill up your gas tank in New Jersey is: Monday mornings because that is when prices drop a bit because it is the least busy time of the week.

And the worst day of the week to fill up is -- any guesses before I reveal? -- Saturday which makes sense because everyone is going places that are farther than usual since no one has work.

If you are someone who always fills up on Saturday and switch it to Monday every single time, you could save yourself up to $30.00 a year. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but if funds are tight, every penny counts.

Who knew that was strategizing when it came to getting gas?
