GasBuddy collects a lot of data on gas prices, and according to a price analysis they did in 2018, gas prices are the lowest on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays.

Monday is a particularly good day to fill up your car with fuel. It was also the least expensive day of the week in GasBuddy’s 2017 study. Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, explained, “though there is variation in daily gas prices across different states, the consensus is that the earlier motorists fill-up during the week, the better. Following Monday, Sunday is the cheapest day to fill-up. Conversely, Thursday follows Friday as the most expensive day to fill-up.”
