300_2797832 Nobody likes feeling robbed of their money at the gas station. We all need to do our best while we still use it to use as little amounts as possible, and spend as little as possible as well. Here are a few different ways of saving gas money.

 The next time you are looking for a vehicle, buy a four cylinder or a car really good on gas, or sell yours and get one. It doesn’t matter if it’s old, ugly, or whatever. If it has plenty of miles on the speedometer still, it will save you tons on gas if you buy it over a nicer vehicle with a big engine. A lot of Hondas are known to get good gas mileage and their durability ranking is amazing, especially theHonda Civic. You can save a lot of money by doing this. If you just have to have a brand new v8 four wheel drive for no reason, don’t even consider complaining about gas prices!

2. Use your air conditioner in the summertime instead of rolling the windows down. It may seem worth it, but it does create more friction than it’s worth.

3. Let your car run a little bit instead of shutting it off and starting it again if you’re sitting somewhere you wont be at very long, such as sonic. It actually can take more gas to start your vehicle.

4. Talk to friends about the cheapest gas (not while texting!) in town, that way you don’t waste gas trying to find a cheaper gas station!

5. Walk or jog where you need to go. I have personally gotten into the habit of walking so much that walking a couple of miles even is nothing and I feel great the rest of the day. You also don’t have to worry about wear and tear on your tires. This can come in handy if you can’t afford insurance for some reason and want to avoid a ticket.
