Deal Diva: Best days to buy gas

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Gas prices are expected to rise through Memorial Day, but knowing the best day of the week to fill up could help ease the pain at the pump.

This month, Gas Buddy, an app that helps drivers find the cheapest gas prices in their area, released a new study that found the best and worst days of the week to purchase gas.

To find the cheapest and most expensive days at the pump, GasBuddy took price and foot traffic data from their app starting Jan. 1 through March 31 of this year.

According to the study, in South Carolina, Sunday is the most expensive day of the week to fill up followed by Fridays and Saturdays.

However, the best day to fill the tank is Monday. Wednesday and Thursday were also reported to be good days to top off.

For North Carolina drivers, the study reported Tuesday was the best day to purchase gas.
