Saving some gasoline cost
can be easily arranged - unless you're a gentle driver currently.
Drive as though you have a raw egg between your foot and the accelerator.
Jack-rabbit starts from traffic lights, etc. chew up gasoline quickly.
Drive a distance ahead - if a car pulls from a driveway into your lane some distance ahead, ease off on the throttle unless you're sure that the car will be out of your way when you catch up.
When you see a traffic light half a block away turn yellow - foot off of the throttle. Then watch the guys go roaring by, turning on the brake lights a hundred feet or so from the light. Major gas saving plan.
It saves on brake shoes' cost, as well, plus mechanic's fees to install them (unless you do it yourself).
As Grandma (who died in 1950) used to say, "A penny saved is a penny earned".
But grandma was only partly right - it takes $1.33 earned to equal (a non-deductible) $1.00 saved, if you are in the 25% income tax bracket.
Have a great New Year, all.
