Tip # 1 for Saving Gas

Some credit cards are offering great gas savings. It works the same way that frequent flyer miles do- you get a bonus every time you fill up. You’re going to fill up anyway, so take advantage of the bonus!

Tip # 2 for Saving Gas

Join the ‘club’. Gas stations are starting to offer great, money saving membership programs. Some grocery and department stores are also giving huge discounts at the gas pump when you use their store card. It’s worth checking into.

Tip # 3 for Saving Gas

Regular tune-ups and oil changes will save you gas in the long run.

Tip # 4 for Saving Gas

Check out gas prices on the internet. There are websites that will let you find the best deals on gas in your area, without having to drive around looking for them.

Tip # 5 for Saving Gas

If you are in the market for a new car, check out the hybrid models. Not only will you save on gas, but you will also be eligible for great tax rebates from both the state and federal government.

Tip # 6 for Saving Gas

Use the cheapest gas possible. Most modern cars run just as well on regular unleaded as on the more expensive premium gas.

Tip # 7 for Saving Gas

Turn off the air conditioner. Running the a/c makes your car’s engine work harder, causing it to burn more gas.
