Albany - With gas prices nearing $4 a gallon, you're probably trying everything you can to make each drop last, but not every trick is worth your time. There are a lot of myths out there about saving gas.
One says if you use premium fuel, you'll have better gas mileage, but really, you'll be paying more for nothing. Even if you're car manual recommends premium, regular fuel should work just fine. Filling your tank in the morning won't save you any money either. The gas in underground tanks stays about the same temperature all day long. And changing your air filter isn't likely to change your fuel efficiency, though it's not a bad idea to do on a routine basis. The best gas-saving tip is to just drive less.
Richard Updyke said, "I'm trying not to make as many trips 'cause gas prices being so high. See, I work for myself and I'm having to go up on my prices. It's rippling down to where it affects everybody."
Gas saving tips that do work: Making sure your tires are properly inflated, and slowing down on the road.
