THE HIGH COSTS OF GASOLINE
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Gas prices too high? Here's how to use less and save money.

* Make sure your tires are properly inflated.

* Get regular oil changes and fuel checks.

* Use clean air and fuel filters.

* Use the air conditioner conservatively, using the "economy" or "recirculation" setting, which reduces the amount of hot outside air that must be chilled.

* Don't top off your gas tank.

* Dont waste more gas driving to a distant location for cheaper gas that will only save you a few cents.

* Keep track of gas mileage. If you notice a steep drop in fuel economy, your car may need to be serviced.

* Don't drive over the speed limit, and do use cruise control to maintain a constant speed.

* Get rid of that unused roof rack - it causes wind drag and uses extra gas.
