How to Cope with Rising Gas Prices

Filling a Gas Tank

Sometimes it feels as though there is no rhyme or reason behind the rise and fall of gas prices. The prices seem to always take two or three steps forward and then just one step back. But we can be sure that the days of cheap gas are long gone.

So, what do you do when the money you spend on gas is squeezing your entire budget? Here are a few simple ways to save money at the pump.

  • One of the biggest impacts on fuel economy is driving style. According to Edmunds.com, calm driving, as opposed to aggressive driving with fast lane changes and hard braking, can improve your fuel efficiency by 35 percent!
  • Drive less. If you have any coworkers who live near you, see if you can work out a carpool and take turns driving. Also, if your family loves to take long weekend drives, you might want to find another way to enjoy your time together.
  • You can save money on gas by using sites such as Gasbuddy.com to find the cheapest price. However, don’t drive across town to save a penny. You can also see if any of your local grocery stores offer fuel savings through loyalty cards. Membership stores, like Sam’s Club, often have less expensive fuel.

If you are in the market for a new more fuel-efficient car, Ford has two 2014 models on the EPA’s list of the top 10 most fuel efficient vehicles. These include the 2014 Ford Focus Electric and the 2014 Ford Fusion Energi. Come visit us at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford and we’ll show you are full lineup of fuel-efficient vehicles.
