It has finally happened!!

The price of gas in my area has reached $3.00 per gallon.
I already drive as little as possible, approximately 11 miles round trip to work. Time to research other gas saving tips.

Things I do to save gas:

1. I run all my errands on my way to work.

2. I obey the speed limit.

3. Maintenance is done regularly.

4. The AC is hardly ever on.

What else is a girl to do?

Don't burn yourself up this summer. The air conditioner is a good use of a few cents.

Have you ever tracked your gas mileage with and without the air conditioner. I would imagine it's not much difference. Let me know what you find out.

We haven't hit $3.00 yet but it's close enough to hear it whisper.

Sorry to hear that the gas has reached to 3 bucks in your area. If it's any consolation, I live in Los Angeles and regular gas is averaging $3.40 a gallon. I had to break down and get myself a bus pass.

Alberen I won't be tracking it anytime soon. There is a heatwave in the NY area so the AC is on full blast until further notice.

Single Ma has I hope the whisper doesn't get any louder.

Courtney I have not broken down just yet. However, I think if I had to buy gas in NYC where it is probably 3.25 or so, I would have a bus pass by now.
