Saving gas by switching cars
We came up with this simple idea a couple of months ago and it makes more and more sense now that the price of fuel is skyrocketing once more. My husband and I traded cars. He has a gas guzzler and I have a little sports car with a 6 speed that gets twice the gas mileage his does. I drive 7 miles round trip to work; he drives 25, so we switched cars. On the weekends, if we have separate things to do, we decide who gets which car based on who has the most miles to drive. I miss my zippy little car, but I do like his satellite radio. We've saved at least a tankful of gas a month and maybe more.
