Road trip season is upon us, but that doesn’t have to mean emptying your wallet at the gas station. Here are five savvy ways to save on fuel costs!
Combine errands and trips. Plan your route and combine errands into one trip. Several short trips will require more fuel than if you were to plan your trip to the grocery store on the way home from work or an appointment.
Empty the car and trunk of extra items. Don’t keep unnecessary items in your car if you don’t have to. According to the Department of Energy, an extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could increase gas costs by up to $.03 cents per gallon!
Keep your tires properly inflated. It’s important to inflate your tires to the pressure listed in your owner’s manual. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage, whereas properly inflated tires are safer and last longer.
