The price of gas in Jersey is now $2.83 per gallon on average. It now costs me more than 30 dollars to fill up from 1/4 tank, in the past the cost was $20. In an effort to save money I now drive at the speed limit. On my route home from the part time gig the speed limit is either 50 or 55 mph depending on which route I take. I drive in the middle lane at or below the speed limit. This means I burn less gas, and the chances of me getting a speeding ticket are slim to none.
Since starting my new driving habits I noticed a marked change in the amount of gas my car uses. The other night I drove down 87 on my way home, then took the GWB into Jersey all on E. I no longer fill my tank since it costs more than 30 bucks. I spend $25, and stretch this gas out till after next pay day.
Note to other driver: When you see me in middle lane cruising please do not flash your lights. Go around. I am not speeding up.
