Reducing Your Pain at the Pump
While you probably cannot cut out buying gas from your life, there are some things you can do to bring the cost down as much as possible.
First, consider what you are driving. When gas prices are lower, it may seem like a small thing to drive a vehicle that doesn’t get great gas mileage. But over the long run, as gas prices increase, this choice will begin to really impact your bottom line. If you are in the market for a new car, look carefully at the mileage you’ll get. Make this an important consideration when looking at different vehicles to make sure you are getting the car that is right for you.
Next, take a good look at your driving patterns. If you run lots of errands, plan your route ahead of time to make sure you are not retracing your steps. Ask family members to pick things up for you when they are out instead of making a separate trip. Also cut down on the number of times you head out to the grocery store. Instead of going shopping several times each week, get in the habit of making a list for the week and only going once.
Finally, make sure your vehicle is well maintained. Get regular service on your car and don’t ignore problems when they show up. Properly inflated tires mean better gas mileage too. Remove excess weight from your trunk to make your vehicle run as light as possible. While there is nothing you can do to bring down the price at the pump, you can make sure that you are reducing your gas costs as much as possible with these simple changes.
