Who needed to save gas delivering for Grubhub, Doordash, Uber Eats, Postmates and others when it was so cheap??? If there was anything wonderful about the whole stay at home ordeal, it was that gas prices bottomed out to next to nothing for awhile.
I heard some say that it was kind of like a hair brush for a bald man though. If you’re staying home and not going anywhere, what good is cheap gas??? But for those who continued to do delivery, there was an added bonus
Sadly, those days are over. Gas prices have been climbing back up. In my market they’re pretty close to where they were before everything went crazy. The good news is it’s still pretty low for summer months, but I expect it may be catching up soon.
As couriers, gas is the one expense that we notice the most. That’s money coming out of our pocket every time we fill up, and every delivery brings us closer to having to fill up again (unless you deliver by bicycle or on foot).
How do you keep that fuel cost down? How can we save on gas and keep more of our earnings from Grubhb, Doordash, Postmates, Uber Eats for ourselves? Here are a few tips.
