It is no secret that the price of gas is unstable. The price fluctuates depending on supply and demand of crude, several other important factors come into play as well. So it is important that we learn how to save on some fuel cost while we can and fortunately, there are many ways to save significantly.
1) Drive Less
Put that car away and make use of the public transport! These days, there are multiple public transport to take whenever you need a lift and if you still prefer to drive, plan by combining your trips into one to avoid multiple trips.
2) Warm Your Car For Lesser Time
When you are warming your car in the morning, do it for less than 30 seconds because warming up the car for more than a minute can result in wasting of the fuel and pump nasty greenhouse gas emissions into the car.
3) Buy Gas Early
Although it is hard to determine when is the best time to buy gas, you are advised to be conscious of the price. For instance, if you notice that the price rise between the weekend, buy gas early in the week!
4) Monitor Your Brakes
We have the tendency to brake excessively especially when approaching a traffic light. Avoid doing it so often as it is one of the easiest ways to waste gas and causing your brake pads to wear out quickly. Keep a lookout of the distance that you are driving and the car ahead you so you can estimate when to stop the brakes.
5) Download An App That Reminds You Of Your Car’s Fuel
