Updated: Sep 12, 2023

March 03, 2022 Hudson Valley gas prices are skyrocketing! Let’s look at a few ways our driving habits are wasting costly fuel. 1- Idling. Now that we are inching into spring, letting your car idle to warm up while you clear the snow from your windshield is happening less. Every fifteen minutes spent idling burns approximately a quarter of a gallon of gas. 2- Aggressive driving (fast starts, stomping on your brakes, speeding) can increase fuel consumption by as much as 40% 3- Use your cruise control! This is your car’s magic weapon for saving money. Set it to the correct speed limit, and you’ll save gas money and no speeding fines. 4- Lose the extra weight. Do you know that bowling ball and set of golf clubs you’ve been meaning to donate to your local Goodwill? Bring it there, and it’s costing you gas money. The heavier the load, the harder the engine has to work, the harder the engine works, the more gas it uses. Looking for ways to save money?
