I have seen a lot of people complaining about ETH GAS fees being way too [damn] high and you are all 100% right. What most people don’t realize is you can decide how much to spend on GAS. I had TrustWallet recommend 54 GWEI for a fee when [Eth Gas Station](https://ethgasstation.info/) showed 5 would be ‘standard’. I dialed the GWEI down to 4, saving more than $30, and the transaction went through an hour later. I did the same with MetaMask and had a transaction where I reduced the default by $20 go through in minutes. The wallets do not update GAS/GWEI estimates regularly and they seem to default to ‘fast’ which is 4x more. Set your own [damn] fees! Thank you to the Redditors that taught me this trick – paying it forward.
