Gas Prices.. What? Almost $4.00. Remember when $2.00 was high? Well here are some tips to keep $ in your pocket.
- Trade-in your gas guzzler for a fuel efficient vehicle.Consider that hybrids may take as long as 10 years to break even. Sure they get great mileage, but their initial cost is so much higher than non-hybrids that it’s not always a great deal. A smaller, newer, non-hybrid may provide great gas mileage at a reduced purchasing price.
- Drive less.Consolidate trips by planning ahead. Shaving even a few miles a day off your routine schedule will add up to big savings.
- Drive smart.Smooth driving at the speed limit saves a tremendous amount of gas. No “jack-rabbit” starts! Accelerating uses the most amount of fuel, therefore if you want to stretch out your mileage…stretch out your acceleration distance by being smooth and patient.
- Find cheap gas.Shop around. We spend thousands on gas a year…doesn’t it make sense to try to find the best deal. Try an online gas price comparison website, such as GasBuddy.com. See link in additional resources section below.
