Ledger live does not allow you to set specific gas prices and forces you to use their obscene minimum instead. Pretty stupid since especially now, ETH gas prices can go through the roof in a heartbeat. But the gas price varies throughout the day and you can actually get away with paying a whole lot less if youre willing to wait.
I sent a tx today using [MEW](https://www.myetherwallet.com/) (which supports hardware wallets including the ledger) and set the gas price to 80 gwei instead of ledger’s recommended minimum of 154 gwei. It took 4 hours to go through but i saved nearly 50% on fees! It usually takes a lot less time ime (between instant and a little over an hour) but the mempool was pretty full today with all the ATH fuss.
Be sure to check the url and bookmark the page for security though! There was at least one instance where [a google ad pointed to a fake MEW phishing website](https://np.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/4xpj0u/malicious_phisher_is_running_google_ads_for/)
