I filled my car today and it was $2.64/gallon today, a 10 cent drop from yesterday. It’s great to see fillups go from $50 to around $35. As you can see by the lovely chart above, my city is seeing gas drop a bit in the past month.
The skeptic in me doesn’t think this trend will continue and I ave decided to keep my conservation habits even as gasoline is getting a it less expensive.
- Removed excess clutter and weigh from my car. My trunk was a mess and had a lot of things in the back. I donated a couple bags of clthes finally and organized it a bit. Less weight means better mileage.
- Carpooled when possible. A few of my friends and I try to carpool. It saves on gasoline and on some wear and tear with our own cars.
- Combined errands to minimize trips. Instead of doing several trips around the city, I bunch errands together that are in the same vicinty. I also learned to not be as impulsive with driving around.
I am not happy when gas prices rise, but hopefully I’m learning to be wiser with using my car.
