Anita Lam’s data analysis

Every time a driver fills up, the cost of transportation goes up due to high gas prices. Due to their propensity for being the thirstiest and having the largest fuel tanks, full-sized SUV and truck drivers pay a disproportionately high price.

Seven vehicles from CR’s tests cost more than $100 to fill up their tanks from empty at the current national average price of $3.95 per gallon for standard gasoline, with three additional models costing less than that amount as gas prices continue to decline from their June 2022 peak. These cars all have huge tanks that can contain 24 to 28 gallons, and according to CR’s tests, they get an average fuel economy of 14 to 17 mpg, which is the lowest of all the cars we examined. These motorists most likely feel the pinch.

We’re currently testing two models that might shortly join this group:

• The Jeep Wagoneer, with a 26.5-gallon tank, also belongs to the over-$100 club, costing $105 to fill up, while the Toyota Tundra, with a 32.2-gallon tank, would cost $127 to fill up.

Although these are extreme cases, many drivers are currently looking for assistance.

Major Gas-Saving Advice

• Gas cards may be alluring due to the savings, but you might save more money with a regular cash-back card.

• Compare prices at the gas station. You can find lower rates if you buy discounted gas at Costco, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s Warehouse. You can also save money by using an app like GasBuddy. Respect the speed limit and drive safely. For many automobiles, this strategy can actually improve fuel economy.
