Renting a car this summer? A budget travel website suggests you can save money by not buying the pre-paid gas when getting a rental car.
The next time you rent a vehicle, you will probably be encouraged to "pre-pay" your gas. Described as a great benefit, it’s a huge moneymaker for car rental companies because you will probably buy gas you never use.
Rental car companies are pushing the pre-paid gas option harder than ever.
It's tempting in such situations to think, "Wow, $2.90 a gallon is actually pretty cheap compared to $3.20 at the Shell station, so I should buy this full tank of gas ahead of time."
