Paying up at the pump fuels a lot of our travel, from vacation road-trips and business travel to the everyday commute. But filling up our vehicles has gotten a lot more expensive this year, with the average gas price increasing by nearly 70 cents per gallon since January. In light of this, we decided to see what Americans have to say about how gas prices affect where they go and how they get there.
WalletHub performed a nationally representative online survey, asking about everything from whether people consider the price of gas when making travel plans to how they decide where to fill up. You can find the complete results in the infographic below.
- What would you say is the significance of this finding from WalletHub’s survey: 12 times more people want gas rewards from their credit card than rewards for Uber/Lyft rides?
- 33% of people believe credit card applicants should have to pass a test before becoming eligible to get a card (like with a driver’s license). Is that a good idea?
- What does it tell you that 37% of people say they would get a gas rewards credit card if it would save them at least $30 per month at the pump?
