High Gas Prices

Written by greg on May 28, 2012

While the price of fuel at the pump continues to soar – what follows is a list of suggestions to offset these prices – I hope you find them helpful. The argument related to the how, why and even authenticity of the ‘fuel crisis’ is irrelevant. Be a proactive consumer – and you are less likely to feel the pinch.

*Buy a more fuel efficient vehicle (if it is a realistic possibility). Does that sound like it’s going to cost money to save money? Well, there is a bit of truth to that – but today’s cars are so much more fuel efficient that it will not take long to realize a true savings (and the added bonus is that today’s vehicles are much safer – lots of new ‘bells and whistles’).

*Even while the speed limit is being increased (dramatically?) in certain Texas locales – research shows that driving slower saves gas. So drive slower.

*Another caution that absolutely makes sense – combine your trips. Do not run out a dozen times a day to pick up one little item after another. Not only will you save gas – but you will find that you are efficient in other areas of your life as well.

*As obvious as it may sound – take up walking and biking to get from one place to another. It’s healthier and in the right conditions – safer.

* Check out websites that search for the lowest prices in your area- gasbuddy is a good place to start.

Don’t be the victim of higher fuel prices.
