Simple solution to saving at the pump is to just stay home, order all your needs online and quit going to places which you are probably spending money you shouldn’t be. Evaluate your necessary and UN-necessary trips. Then try to walk or bike more. Or screw what I’m saying and just incorporate these handy tips from Ideal Bite on how to take fewer trips to the gas pump:
“For starters, roll your windows down while driving around town to keep cool, but opt for A/C once the speedometer hits 45 mph. At higher speeds, your rolled-down car windows cause wind resistance and actually decrease efficiency. You can also improve gas mileage and keep loads of CO2 out of the air each year by keeping your tires properly inflated. Gonna stay put for more than 10 seconds? Turn off the engine – an idling car creates twice the emissions of a car in motion.”
Ugh. How I despise cars that idle for no good reason and what’s up with truckers leaving those big rigs idling all the time? And you pizza delivery boys! Turn that shit off while you mosey my pizza pie up to me, slowly make change and then don’t get a tip to sulk back to your ride. Maybe I would tip you if you quit spewing out emissions all over my driveway.
And another question along the lines of saving gas that I’m going to turn over to the world is, what are big families suppose to be driving these days? It’s seems as though families of 5 or more are getting screwed with their gas guzzling minivans. Any suggestions? This December, we officially transform into a familia of five and I’m thinking we are going to need more seating than the little VW offers us to squeeze in three car seats of our little ones.
