How to Save Money on Gas



Good day, my friends, here are some gas saving tips for you:

The price of gasoline was on the rise few months ago. That was truly a great concern if you are following a tight budget. So how can you save some money on gas even when the price is not so high? Read these tips.

The carpool system

This is a great idea for employees and students alike. Since all of you will have the same destination, there is no need to bring extra vehicles if you can all fit in one car or van. If you are with your co-workers, it is a good idea to bring your cars alternately or on rotation. If you have children that you bring to school or social events, exchange driving responsibilities with your friends.

Commute to work

You can always take the public transportation system when going to the office. This is also a good way to relax since you are not driving. You can even take a short nap while on your way.

Look at the prices of different gas stations

Take time to drive around and check the pump prices of the gas stations near your neighborhood. Keep in mind that a few cents difference can add up to a lot if you continually have your car re-filled in the same gas station all the time.

Shed some sweat

A good way to save money on gas and keep yourself healthy at the same time is by walking or riding a bike to your destination. It saves time since you do not have to look for parking and also makes you healthier from the exercise. Utilizing these alternatives will also keep you from getting stuck in traffic which will surely waste a lot of your time and gas.

Keep your car in very good condition

It is necessary to keep your car’s engine in good running condition so that it will not consume a lot of fuel. When driving around on errands, plan out your route before you even get out of the house. This will minimize your trips going back and forth. If is also ideal to use the aircon as minimal as possible since it drastically increases the car’s fuel consumption.

Check your car’s tire pressure

Keep it a habit to check your car’s tires so each one has the right amount of pressure. Having unequal pressure can greatly affect the car’s fuel economy. It is also advised for you to refrain from accelerating too fast since this means burning a lot more fuel.

These are some of the things that you can do to save on gas. Gasoline is not a renewable resource, therefore using it wisely is very important to conserve this valuable commodity.

    There is no sence in saving money on gas when gas is $2,5 per gal. again.

  5. As for me, there is always a sence in saving money! Am I right?

  6. I fully agree, that saving gas is also helathy when you walk to work or ride a bicycle. It really saves time since you do not have to look for parking and also makes you healthier from the exercise. My father walk to his work every day and he rides a bike several times a week. I’m proud of him!

  7. lol, gas’s cheap now, I guess, there is no sence in such articles

  8. This is a very timely post. The gasoline price hike really triggered disorientation. Never did I imagine my friends, who love changing their mugs and other car accessories, giving up on this hobby but they surely have now.

  12. I’m not a driver.. how much does gas cost now?

  13. it’s ~$1.30-2 per gal. :) It depends on State, City, Gas stations…

  14. lol it was $4/gal few months ago… Now it’s $2, however, prices in Europe stay the same, while in the US they really dropped down. What’s the reason?

  15. Have you heard about Syntek XFT. Seems to save about 10-25% on gas prices depending on the make of the vehicle and the operator’s driving style. Hope it helps!
