What happens when gas prices get cheaper?

Regardless of how gas prices change, the price you lock with TankWallet is ultimately what you spend on gas. Both TankWallet and non-TankWallet users pay the same price at the pump. With TankWallet, however, you are always FULLY reimbursed for the price you pay at the pump, up to the locked in amount.*

*Example - The first month, you lock in 10 gallons of gas at $2/gallon, paying a total of $20 to TankWallet. The price of gas increases to $3/gallon at the pump. You pay $30 for 10 gallons of gas at the pump, and submit this purchase to TankWallet using the app. TankWallet reimburses you $30, and you ultimately spend $20 on gas.

The next month, you are again able to lock in 10 gallons of gas at $2/gallon. This time, the price of gas decreases to $1/gallon at the pump. You pay $10 for 10 gallons of gas at the gas station, and submit this purchase using the TankWallet app. TankWallet reimburses you $10, and you ultimately spend $20 on gas.   

No matter if gas prices increase or decrease, your final spend is $20.

Regardless of how gas prices change, the price you lock in is ultimately what you spend on gas. TankWallet reimburses you for the rate you pay at the pump.

Note: The best time to lock in gallons for later is when prices are decreasing!
