5-10-08: Slow Down, Save Gas

What really bugs me about this whole "energy crisis" is that many people complain about high gas prices, but really don't do anything about it. There are simple ways to save money on gas that don't adversely affect your life.

One thing to do is to just slow down a little bit. You don't need to floor it everywhere you go. I still see a lot of people driving around like they're late to something, even though they probably just drive like that anyway. Slowing down saves gas, which in turn saves you money. Plus, you get to enjoy the scenery a bit more. Please, slow down.

And, try to keep the quick acceleration and deceleration to a minimum. You really don't need to slam on the brakes and stay right on the bumper of the car in front of you, especially in city traffic. It's just stupid. Try to be a bit more considerate to others and you'll both save yourself some money, and maybe you'll even feel a bit better for being nice.

It's about taking it easy, folks.

If I forget to post tomorrow, have a Happy Mother's Day.
