The rankings are based on more than 2.2 million reviews submitted through the GasBuddy app since September 2016, covering more than 140,000 retail locations where gasoline is sold.

Consumers can rate and review gas stations in multiple categories with the free GasBuddy app.

GasBuddy projects the national average gas price this Christmas will be $2.39 per gallon, which is a 12-cent drop since Thanksgiving, but the priciest Christmas in four years.

Here are GasBuddy’s top tips for drivers on the road this holiday season: 

Watch out for state lines: Because of differing state taxes, in some extreme cases, drivers can spend an extra $25 when refueling the tank if on the wrong side of the line.
Look for discounts: Some gas stations offer discounts for paying with cash and others accept credit cards with no additional cost. If you have a credit card that earns rewards and the price is the same as cash, you end up getting free rewards.
In a hurry? Spend a fury: Speeding, aggressive driving and hard braking can cost upwards of $10 per tank, adding up to $477 per year on average.
