GasBank.com, a new start up expected to launch within the next few months, is promising to let customers buy as many gallons of gas as they want, at today’s price, and pump it into their car whenever they like.
How does it work? The idea is to pool the money of multiple members and hedge the price of gas in the futures markets. There will be fees, between $20 and $25 to sign up and 1-2% on each transaction, but for the savvy gas buyer, it could total big savings.
