Save money on gas over Labor Day

Everyone loves to save money and, with the cost of fuel, saving money on gas can have a sizable impact on your wallet.

Now Walmart has jumped on the gas savings bandwagon with its Great Gas Rollback program offered at Walmart and Murphy USA gas stations across the country. Customers can save 15 cents per gallon when filling up their cars and paying with Walmart's Bluebird AMEX, Walmart credit cards or a Walmart MoneyCard or gift card.

While saving 15 cents a gallon on gasoline doesn't sound like a lot, it can add up quickly when you paying hefty gas prices. "Last year, Walmart customers pumped 975 million gallons of gas using the Great Gas Rollback, saving more than $98 million," said Walmart spokeswoman Molly Blakeman.

The Gas Rollback program runs through Sept. 8, including Labor Day weekend.
