Default Gasoline saving tips

With the high price of gas at te pumps these gas saving tips are timely.

There's nothing like gasoline prices at more than $1 a litre to get people thinking about ways to save money at the pumps. Motorists hate it when gas prices rise and many refuse to believe that it's simply supply and demand at work.
Drivers will dutifully consult websites devoted to finding the lowest prices in their area and will then drive kilometres out of their way to join the inevitable line to fill up. It seems there are few things more satisfying than buying a tankful of cheap(er) gas.

Of course, there are many ways to save money on gas. You can always move to Venezuela, where it costs about three cents a litre. If that's too drastic, you can take public transit, car pool or combine short trips. But what if you simply want to drive the same amount but save money. Fortunately, you're in luck.
Most of the following gas saving tips have been tested under controlled conditions either in Canada or the United States. And some of them have been found to save so much gas, you'll think you've bought a hybrid car (which is, of course, another great way to save gas money).
Go here for the rest of the article➔Gas saving tips

And get a credit card with 5% off of gas. If you use $200/month, that's $10 (or $120/year.)

Costs more per unit, perhaps, but burns more efficiently.

Here, it's cheaper then gasoline.

I get about 620 miles out of my 11-gallon tank (about 56 mpg).

YES! This is a pretty good deal. Also, at WM, you get three cents off gas if you buy a gift card and use it to pay for gas, if you oppose credit cards, or like me, never keep 'em on you.

Pfft, I bought Korean, 35mpg, and I love it. That's the best I can do with the money I have, and I combine as many things as I can before driving.
