David, DR. ROADMAP, Rizzo burst upon the traffic scene in late 1987 as the first person in Los Angeles to offer alternate routes to motorists who were sick and tired of being stuck in traffic. In 1990 he released to the world the most comprehensive guide ever written of off-freeway commuting in Southern California. Two years later he became the first traffic reporter to offer daily alternate routes in real time over the air on one of the most popular morning radio shows in Los Angeles. Dr. Roadmap continues to provide COMMUTE MANAGEMENT solutions with the 2006 release of his book, "Survive the Drive! How to Beat Freeway Traffic in Southern California."

Question: When is the best day to fill my tank? Dr. David Rizzo: Wednesday is the best day, here is why. Anecdotal evidence that comes in from readers and motorists on road via cellphone and websites shows that gas station tend to raise their prices on Mondays and Thursdays, so you want to beat them with a punch, Wednesday is a good day. You certainly never want to wait till the weekend and if it's a three day weekend, definitely fill up earlier because the gas station owners know that a lot of people will be hitting the road, they raise the prices. So, Wednesday is a nice, happy medium to get the best price.
