Gas Prices Soar.
Written on September 1, 2005 by Kevin.
What can be done when the gas prices soar? Families still need to get out and do daily tasks but this has increasingly become a strain on many of our pockets. Here in Arizona, we are paying already over $3.00 at some stations, just for unleaded gasoline. The hurricane certainly wont help that either. So what can be done to help alleviate the issue? Here are some common sense ideas that many people may overlook:
Going out of your way to save money on gas is a good idea, going across town is not.
Gas stations here sometimes charge a processing fee for credit/debit cards, add this into the total amount your going to spend and compare it to the station down the road.
More so than ever, try to avoid slow traffic as that will drain your tank quickly.
Perform a tune-up on your car so its running the best that it can. Deflated tires will also assist in draining your tank.
If you have a child, use the gas prices as a learning experience. Take your child on the bus and let them see the world from a different view.
If you have any tips of your own, leave a comment for others to see.
