Four Ways to Save at the Gas Pump

Gas prices tend to rise in the spring and summer. If you’re looking for ways to save some money on gas, here are a few tips to keep your wallet, and tank full.

Monitor Tire Pressure

There are a lot of things that can affect your gas mileage, and underinflated tires is one of them. Not having enough air in your tires will cost you because you’ll have to fill up more often. In fact, the Department of Energy says low tire pressure can cost you an extra three cents a gallon. Learn how much air should be in your tires and keep an eye out for deflation.

Watch Your Speed

Going too fast can cost you at the pump. If you drive the speed limit, or even slightly under it, you’ll be saving money by maximizing your fuel economy. Driving the appropriate speed won’t just save you at the gas station, you’ll also avoid getting pulled over, and speeding tickets can be quite expensive.


This tip will not only help you, but your coworkers as well. If you live near colleagues, offer to start a carpooling schedule. That way you will all save money. Carpooling doesn’t have to be just for work. If you all have children, you can schedule school transportation, activities, and group trips. Having a carpool with friends and neighbors benefits everyone.
