Need to Find Cheap Gas? There's an App for That

— March 21, 2011

Wright Express, a global provider of business payment processing and information management solutions, announced the release of its new Fuel Site Locator mobile application.

This latest smartphone technology allows Wright Express customers the ability to locate the type of fuel they need at the lowest price–no matter where they are. Based on the 1 million+ daily transactions that go through its proprietary network, the fuel price information that Wright Express is able to offer its customers through this application is the most current and accurate available.

To use, customers simply set the location, search radius, and fuel type, and within seconds they receive a list of fuel sites that meet their criteria. Five sites with the lowest fuel price options will be listed first, with the ability to list additional sites. All results can be re-sorted by brand or radius, and for drivers who find themselves in unfamiliar areas, any site can be plotted on a map using GPS. Maps can be changed to satellite, hybrid, or terrain views.

“Wright Express understands the importance of efficient driving and fueling practices for business owners and their employees – especially with today’s escalating fuel prices and the need for fleets of all sizes to save money on every fill up,” says Kenneth Janosick, senior vice president of small business solutions at Wright Express. “By using this new application, customers can save as much as 10 to 15 cents per gallon on the price of fuel by simply using the application every time they need to fuel and then identifying the lowest fuel price in their area. This represents a true value on what can oftentimes be a business owner’s largest expense."

Currently, the Fuel Site Locator mobile application is available free of charge to Wright Express customers. To learn more, call a Wright Express representative at 877-824-2715.
