As society comes back to its “new normal” in a post-pandemic world, it’s no surprise that people are going out more and trying to reclaim some semblance of pre-pandemic life. With that comes transportation, and because there’s no such thing as a never-ending supply of gas, you’re probably wondering how to save on gas. Fortunately, we have a few tips to help you save on gas like a pro!
Maintain your tires.
Keeping your tires inflated properly is crucial to saving gas. Underinflated tires use up gas, so it’s critical to check tire pressure once a month, especially when colder temperatures cause tires to lose more air.
Consolidating trips might seem like a no-brainer, but combining trips is very effective for saving gas. For example, instead of just going to the bank, you can go to the grocery store, post office, and library all in one trip so that you’re not taking out your car for one single errand.
Don’t let your engine run.
Letting your engine run idly in the parking lot or driveway when nobody is in the car is one of the biggest causes of gas wastage. Whenever you get out of your vehicle, don’t forget to turn off your engine!
Walk or ride a bike.
And if you live in a big city, take advantage of public transportation. Not only is this intuitive, but it’s good for the environment as well! Your health will also thank you for it.
