Tips On Saving Gas

UNDATED (WKZO) -- If gas prices are going up and you need to drive anyway, there may be some strategies for saving gas, even and especially if your ride is a clunker. If you travel at highway speeds, it’s more efficient to keep the Air Conditioning on, and the windows closed to reduce drag.

Slowing down to 60 from 70 MPH on a 20 mile daily commute will save you a gallon a week.  If you put a big bag of sand or salt in your trunk for winter emergencies, or carry around a lot of other junk, take it out.  It takes fuel to haul around all that extra weight.
