Stretch your gas dollarsGas prices are rising, but
you don't have to feel the pain. » 9 tips
Here are the
1. Find a bargain.
If you're taking a
summer road trip, plan out your route before you go. Identify
gas stations along the way that have the lowest prices Go to
can usually find the best prices on Tuesday.
your tires fully inflated. The U.S.
Department of Energy reports that the average driver can
improve mileage by 3.3 percent simply by inflating their
vehicle's tires regularly. In fact, according to the AAA,
under-inflated tires are the No. 1 way we waste gas. One out
of every four cars and one out of every three pickups, vans,
and SUVs have at least one extremely low tire. So pick up a
tire gauge at your local auto parts store and check your tire
pressure whenever you pull into a service station for gas.
Your car's owner's manual will tell you the recommended PSI --
pounds per square inch -- rating. It is also printed on the
tire but hard to read.
3. Get a tune-up. A vehicle
in need of servicing is wasting gas in more ways than one.
According to the Department of Energy, replacing a clogged air
filter can improve your gas mileage by 10 percent, while
fixing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve gas mileage by an
unbelievable 40 percent. So kick off your summer by getting
that tune-up you've been putting off. Check your owner's
manual, or download a free service and maintenance schedule at
Fill 'er up with regular unleaded if possible. If premium
gas isn't absolutely required by your car's manufacturer, then
opt for regular unleaded. According to AAA, one out of five
gallons of gas pumped in the U.S. is premium -- yet only 10
percent of vehicles require this higher octane
The truth is that you may not even notice the
difference when you drive your car with regular gas instead of
premium, and the cost difference can be as much as 40 cents
per gallon. If your car doesn't require premium unleaded,
you're wasting your money -- premium doesn't improve
5. Adjust your driving habits.
Speeding, excessive accelerating, and sudden braking all waste
gas. A more relaxed driving style not only improves safety, it
also improves gas mileage by 33 percent for highway driving.
Idling your engine for long periods can also waste up to a
gallon of gas per hour. Also, think twice before blasting the
air conditioning. According to the Department of Energy,
operating your car's air conditioner on its maximum setting
can reduce your miles per gallon by 5 to 25 percent compared
to not using it at all.
6. Clean out your trunk.
Unnecessary cargo weighs your car down. A hundred extra pounds
can reduce your miles per gallon by 2 percent.
vacation? Try to avoid storing luggage on your roof. The
increased wind resistance will reduce your mileage as
7. Carpool. You'll literally save
thousands of dollars a year in fuel costs if you share a ride
to work. Here's an example: If you commute to work 40 miles
per day round trip, work full-time, drive a vehicle that gets
24 mpg, and pay the national average for gas, your estimated
yearly cost to commute is $5,124. But if you carpool with one
other person, you'll save an estimated $2,562 a year. Carpool
with three other people and you'll save an estimated $3,843 a
Plug your own commuting numbers into the CommuteSmart
cost calculator to see what you can save by carpooling. Then
find a rideshare buddy in your area by visiting eRideShare.com.
If you're buying a new car, make fuel efficiency a
There's so much to consider when purchasing a
new car that fuel efficiency can get lost in the shuffle. By
law, however, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) fuel
efficiency rating for new cars is posted in large black
numbers on a sticker
in the window.
Due to the way vehicles (including
hybrids) are tested, those EPA ratings didn't used to reflect
real-life conditions. But according to a recent Consumer
Reports article, the EPA is using a more accurate method for
determining fuel efficiency for all 2008 vehicles. So whether
you're shopping at a dealer or comparing EPA estimates
online, some quick calculations will help you find a fuel
efficient car that's right for you.
9. Buy a hybrid,
get a tax break. Driving a hybrid, which runs on a
combination of gas and electric power, will significantly
increase your miles per gallon. Hybrid cars are becoming more
affordable, too. According to a recent Wall Street Journal
article, in the past it took up to 15 years for the cost
savings on gas to offset hybrids' higher sticker prices. But
now buyers are seeing a significantly shorter length of time
to recoup their investment -- for some models, the break-even
period is less than a year. The government is even offering
tax incentives when you purchase certain hybrid vehicles. To
find out the details, visit the IRS
web site. To read more about hybrid cars, visit Yahoo!
Autos. The Right Mindset
The Right MindsetFour dollars a gallon sounds scary
to Americans. But the fact that demand continues to increase
along with price says it all: We complain about high gas
costs, but in reality they don't deter our driving. Fuel
prices won't really go down until our dependency on gasoline
does. I tend to agree with the experts who say that we could
possibly see gas prices reach double-digits before anything
truly changes. Adopting a gas-conserving mindset is a step in
the right direction. So think before you pump, and enjoy your
summer. Most important, drive safely!

per gallon for bottled water and if you use an ink jet printer
you are paying $8,000.00 per gallon for ink cartridges.

Letters From our ReadersDear Peggy Jo,
your newsletter and I think it is a perfect place for this
story because we are in the middle of High School Prom season.
Some time ago, my friend was saddened when the doctors
told he that her newborn son downs syndrome and that she
should take steps to find an institution for him. Instead she
spent the next 15 years working with him and the wonderful
special education teachers. He develelped enough that he was
"main streamed" when he got to be high school age. George came
home from school one day, and told his mother that he would
like to go to the Prom. She asked him "Who would you take to
the prom?" He answered. " I would like to ask Grandma? Rather
than dismissing the idea as being ridiculous, my friend told
her mother about George's idea and "grandma" thought it was a
good idea, she wanted to see what the kids of today were
wearing and she also wanted to get all dressed up
the night of the prom, grandma picked up George and they went
to the prom all dressed up. About midnight my friend got a
cell phone call from Grandma. She said she was dead-tired but
George was having such a good time she felt she had to stay.
Every one of the girls at the prom asked George to
I think this is a wonderful story and I hope you
Response: It is a very lovely and inspiring
story. I applaud everyone involved. The Grandmother showed a
lot of understanding and compassion. How many grandmothers
would go to a prom with their grandson. i also congratulate
all the young ladies that made George feel welcome. Of course
the mother who nurtured and encouraged her son to do the best
that he could.
For they are simpletons who turn away from me
