ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Lee County man parked the car and took advantage of this morning's cooler temperatures to take care of business without wasting gas.

Kevin Childs wasn't horsing around, he was running errands along Route 19 Wednesday morning. Child's said with gas prices again near four dollars he thought he'd save what was in his tank and take four year old Flash instead.

"We paid our electric bill, went by the bank and made some deposits, went by the contractors yard and conducted a little business there and went by a customer's house, Bella Harris to give her a ride but she wasn't home," said Kevin Childs.

Childs said he plans to use Flash more often to run his errands because he costs a lot less to fill up.
