I think we’ve actually gotten desensitized to the phenomenon of $3 gas, since there hasn’t been a lot of news about it creeping up above $3. This is a Chevron near my house, so I can imagine that it’s been way above $3 in much more swankier towns for much longer. I heard on the radio the other day that $2.53/gallon was the best deal around! Dang.
Well, if you’re like me, this isn’t helping your wallet. In general, I go fill up every week and a half, but you may be looking for ways to economize….. I found this website via a work video I was cutting and thought I’d share.
It’s helpful since it gives a more realistic view of what each car’s mileage is, with consideration to highway vs. city driving, how fast you drive, whether you drive in traffic, etc. I suppose in many ways, I’m lucky, since I don’t spend that much time in traffic, and I would say a good 85% of my driving is on the highway. Anyway, have fun and try to save on gas.
