DescriptionFor whatever reason, due to supply and demand and the result of speculators speculating wildly, fuel prices are at an all-time high. And since our country simply doesn’t have a well developed mass transportation system in place, save for some of the larger cities, owning and driving a car is a necessity for most Americans.
A little bit of money saved on fuel prices here, a little bit there, it adds up quickly. First, and most obvious, drive a fuel-efficient car. Get yourself a sedan or maybe even a hybrid if you’re willing to spend a little more up front.
You shouldn’t drive like a maniac, even if your car gets 50 mpg on the highway. Don’t peel away from the intersection when the stoplight turns green. The harder you press the gas pedal, the more gas is consumed. Get your foot off the pedal and let momentum propel your car forward.
That’s gas saved, and money earned back from fuel prices.
