While gas prices may be dropping a bit now, it’s sure to be only a matter of time before they spike again. Remember, to save on fuel mileage, avoid high speeds, don’t accelerate or brake hard, keep those tires inflated, use your air-conditioning sparingly, and keep the windows closed. Be sure to keep your vehicle maintained, use your cruise control where you can, avoid heavy loads that increase weight on the vehicle, avoid long idles, and if you are purchasing a new vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle’s fuel economy.
