3 practical ways I plan to fight gas prices

In my opinion, the price of gas will become a big issue in the 2012 presidential election.

Here’s a story that reflects this thought.

But until then, conservation will become a big issue in my life.

Here’s some ways I hope to cut back on my car mileage this summer.

Schedule trips wisely

Remember the carefree days of $1/gallon gas?

You can drive anywhere just for fun and it wouldn’t cost much. Grocery shop an hour away. Why not? Drive around the countryside? Sure.

It’s not a problem to do that from time to time, but don’t take a lot of unnecessary trips. These add up quickly.

Pick a gas station and stick with it

Gas stations will offer rewards and bonus points for doing your shopping with them. I like playing video games to relax and I’ve been able to buy various games for free through bonus points. In addition, you can use these points for gas savings

Plan intelligent vacations

You don’t have to stay home for the summer, but driving from Ohio to California may not be the smartest choice either. Do your homework and make choices for vacations that give you the “biggest bang for your buck.”
