The Number One Way to Save on Gas

Jun 12, 2008
With gas going up every single day people are starting to really focus on ways to save gas. That is because gas is really putting people in a financial crunch. That means people need to get creative and find ways to save money so that they do not have to feel the full effect of the rising gas prices.

Carpool

One of the easiest ways of all to save gas is to carpool. Not everyone likes carpooling, but with gas prices going up and not appearing t slow down any time soon more people are open to the idea. The best way to go about carpooling is to find several other people who work with you that would be interested. You can have up to four or five people, depending on the vehicles people drive. This allows everyone to drive every fourth or fifth week, which is pretty good when you think of the price of gas.

Maximize Outings

Many of us go to the grocery store and then back home. Then, an hour or two later we remember that we need to run out and pick up something else and so on and so forth. Over the course of a year, this adds up to a lot of wasted gas. That is why it is so important to make a list of everything you need to do in the period of a week and try to do it all at once. Take a Saturday, for example, and run all of your errands. It will free up time the rest of the week and allow you to make the best use of gas.

No AC

If you are really trying to save gas then stop using the air conditioner. This is especially challenging during the summer months, but doing so could really save you a lot of gas. When you are on a tight budget every penny counts and not using the AC will really help in the long run.

Tune-ups

Getting regular tune-ups are really important as far as gas saving goes. Keeping your car in the best condition possible will allow you to get the best gas mileage. This will save you money in the long run because your car will be in better condition, you will get better gas mileage, and you will see more money in your bank account!

These are just a few ways to help you save gas while gas prices are soaring. In addition, if you incorporate them into your daily life you will be able to really save a lot of money over the course of your lifetime. So, take advantage of the expensive gas prices and learn to start saving. It is better for your bank account and for the planet!

These are just a few things you can do to save on gas. Use your imagination like you would anything else. There are always ways to save on any product you buy. It just takes time and effort to save that extra penny! In the long run, it's worth it.
