  1. OMG the one about keeping the tire pressure good! My back tire has been low for about 2 weeks I really should get on that!

    Sweet tips in today’s economy!

  2. I checked my tires a few weeks ago for the first time in a long time and was amazed to see 3 tires were fine… but one had about 18 psi in it. Just a bit low, to say the least! It took 3 services stations to find one with a working air pump and non-leaking hose, but I filled it up, finally!

  3. Everyone has there own little thing for trying to save these days. It just sucks that we let it get this bad for such a long time.

  4. Folks also need to pay attention to how they accelerate. Smooth and slow is the key. Do that and you’ll see a big change in your gas consumption!
