Ok, it's time again to look at how we travel and our fuel consumption. Currently, regular gas is 3.39 a gallon in my town, and I drive a Ford Expedition, which gets about 17 mpg. So, I am having to rethink some of my going. Now I was not one for going everywhere all the time, but if I just wanted to go look in at a particular store just to 'see what they had', I would go (most of the time). But now, I really have to add in how much gas it takes for that trip.
If you have an appointment, or have to pick something up in a neighborhood other than your own, ask yourself 'is there anything in that vicinity that I need or will need soon'.
Can you put off a trip to the library/store one more day?
How badly do I really need an item? Can I make a substitute?
