>Any ideas on cutting down on gas consumption? I’ve read all the lame ass Yahoo tips. I need some real world examples.
Right now, I’m done with going out to lunch. Unless I can walk there, I can’t afford to drive my car to the various local eateries anymore. Walking is tough at my house because shit is so far away. At work it’s a bit easier on the feet, but the homeless will harass a single walker, especially of the female persuasion. Trying to find a walking budding can be tough.
No more impulse shopping trips. I’m going to have to actually need more than one item before I spend the gasoline to get to the store.
I refuse to go over the speed limit. Since I don’t have any fires to put out, I also refuse to get to the speed limit as fast as possible.
I do have alot of stuff in my trunk. Cleaning it out will probably only help with the gas mileage. If I had a tire gage, I’d check my tire pressure regularly. But then again, I probably wouldn’t know how to inflate my tires if they needed it.
Someone in my office said her family spends about $1,000 a month on gasoline on their two cars. That’s almost how much I pay for rent!
>We spend about $100.00 a week for gas. I think I’m going to buy a motorcycle but I don’t know how to strap down the baby seat?
>Eh, I hear you. It’s nuts. I’m thankful I have a 20 ft. commute.
>It’s out of control and has been that way for too long.
You could always get one of those sidecar things. I’m sure a baby seat would fit in that.
