Tips For Saving On Gasoline, Even As Gas Prices Rise

A recent Time Magazine article revealed that the US Environmental Protection Agency has imposed new emissions regulations requiring oil refiners to reduce sulfur levels in gasoline. This adjustment is aimed at reducing smog, improving air quality and helping Americans with respiratory challenges, such as emphysema and asthma.

Oil industry experts are saying these improvements will come at a cost to the public, though, as refineries invest in new technology. But although gas prices are rising, here are a few tips to save you money at the pump.

  • Tune-Ups: Engine maintenance can boost fuel efficiency by four percent.
  • Air Filters: Clean air filters can boost overall gas mileage by at least 10 percent.
  • Deflated Tires: While it seems relatively harmless, deflated tires wear faster and cause you to lose about three percent in fuel economy.
  • Speeding: According to the US Department of Energy, speeding is the biggest gasoline waster of all. In fact, the USDOE states: “As a rule of thumb, you can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.21 per gallon for gas (at $3.00 per gallon).”
