Times are tight, and everybody is looking for ways to save a penny when and where they can. And driving your automobile is one of the most consistent money-drains we all deal with on a daily basis. So if you are a road warrior, here are a few simple ways to save on your overall gas consumption.
First and foremost, on a hot day it is better to turn on your car’s AC, rather than to roll down your windows. OK, not always, but while you’re driving fast at least.
