Green Tip of the Week

Save gas and save money.

1 gallon of gas = 19 pounds of carbon dioxide.

To save gas, try the following: use cruise control, use air conditioning instead of open windows at high speeds, obey the speed limit, maintain constant speed, avoid rush hour, drive less aggressively, skip warming up newer cars, keep tires properly inflated, and keep car tuned up. Also, if you fill your car's gas tank early or late in the day, less gas will be lost to evaporation. This evaporation increases emissions and causes smog.
