Money Saving Tip: Save Gas

February 22, 2012 6 Comments | Disclosure

Are you looking for some simple ideas to save money? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

Here’s an easy way to save on gas…planning.  How many times do you run to the grocery store to quickly pick up something you forgot?  I am so guilty of this, but with gas prices always rising, I have decided to be more conscious of the gas I use.  So how am I doing it?

I’m starting with a few simple tricks that add up over time.

Don’t make any unnecessary trips out of the house.

The extra trip means you’re spending extra gas and therefore extra money.

Plan other useful errands you can run that are on the way or in the same area of your destination.  This way you make your trip worth the gas.

Get organized. Make sure you take everything with you when you leave the house to go somewhere so you’re not temped to “swing” back home if you forgot something. All that “swinging back home” can add up.

  1. Do a search on hypermiling….it’s amazing how much your fuel mileage will increase if you just change the way you drive!

    Use the Gas Buddy app on Android or IPhone to get the cheapest price around

  3. Filling your tank during the coolest part of the day means you’ll get more gas. The hot temperatures cause the gasoline to expand (ever so slightly) meaning you’re putting less in your tank during the hottest part of the day.
