Gasonline Goal Update

September has come and gone and I was reviewing how I did with my gasoline budget for that month. My goal was to fill up once a week. With gas prices around $2.59/gallon and my tank is about 13 gallons my weekly goal was $34. Here’s what I actually did:

Good news is that I did pretty well with my goal. I tried to carpool with some people on the weekends, but it didn’t work out that way. I decided to reduce the time I spent driving and stayed home a bit more than I would’ve preferred. It wasn’t so bad and I managed to actually unwind a bit.

I’m going to reduce my need for the car from now on. I realized how dependent and lazy I am when it comes to going places. Trent had some suggestions on how to cut gasoline while commuting.

Don’t forget to check out my articles on what to have in your car and also how to minimize repair costs.

Any suggestions or how I can improve on saving at the pump?
