Savvy ways to save on gas

With gas prices hovering over $4 a gallon, every penny counts. Here are some savvy ways to cut the cost of gas.

Drive like a sane person. Rapidly accelerating can cost you. Save money on the road.

Use your smartphone to find the cheapest gas in your area. Also, check the traffic before you leave home.

Don’t leave the engine on for too long. It wastes more gas than restarting.

Gas stations charge a premium on credit cards to offset the processing fees. Pay cash!

Do proper maintenance. Under-inflated tires will cause you to need more gas to get anywhere.

Be picky about where and how you fill up. A convenient gas station can cost you $0.15 more per gallon.
