Gas Sense

Last Friday the cost of a barrel of oil went up over $138 - a $10 increase in one day. If you haven't seen $4 per gallon gas yet you soon will. What can we do to keep from having to take out a second mortgage on the house to pay for our monthly fuel bill. In my Memorial Day Weekend post I gave some tips to help you with fuel shock but here are some additional thoughts on saving gas:
  1. Limit your trips - make a game plan for your day so that you can get more done in one trip then having to make multiple trips.
  2. Ask your employer to consider a 4 day work week - staying home one day a week might give you the needed break in your fuel costs.
  3. If you can't get that one day off during the work week try taking one of the weekend days off - don't move your cars on either Saturday or Sunday.
Let me know how you are saving money at the fuel pump.
