With rising gas prices and the negative impact gas has on the environment, saving gas can only be a good thing.

It’s easy to tell people to ride a bike or take public transportation instead, but that’s not an option for everyone. Here are a few ways to save money on the gas that you do use.

If you are looking for more ways to save gas, you can go here.

  1. Don’t speed! Remember that driving 50-55 miles per hour is the optimal speed for your car. If you drive any faster than that, you’ll just waste gas.
  2. Keep your engine tuned up–this can improve your gas mileage by about 4.1 percent.
  3. Likewise, keep your tires properly inflated. This can improve your gas mileage by about 3.3 percent.
  4. Group your errands together to decrease the amount of driving time.
  5. Highway driving is more efficient than surface streets, so take the freeway when possible.

What is your favorite way to use less gas? We look forward to hearing your opinion!
