Making gas last longer

Gas is still outrageously overpriced, and we still have to go places. There are many ways to make gas last longer, if we just think a little and pay attention.

1. Drive the speed limit. I know, we all hate to do it, but speeding may get you there faster, but it will consume more gas.

2. Plot your course in advance. Know where you are going and try and take the shortest route. Try to avoid unnecessary backups and trips.

3. Intelligent shopping. Do your shopping on one day a week, get everything you need in one trip. Multiple trips to the store not only affects your gas, it affects your grocery bill, because most people will pick up a few extra things per trip.

4. Plan. Plan your trips, vacations, etc. Try to refrain from many spur of the moment trips.

Just by following these few tips, you can cut back on your gas consumption.
