Is It Possible to Save on Gas with Prices on the Rise?

June 11th, 2018 by

If you’ve filled your tank several times over the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed that gas prices have been on an upward trajectory recently. While you can’t do much about having to pay more per gallon, there are a few things you can do to keep your overall fuel costs as low as possible despite rising gas prices.

The first thing you should do is bring your car into our Barberton, OH car service center to get caught up with the routine maintenance your vehicle needs. When your automobile is well-maintained, it uses fuel more efficiently, which can help you save money at the pump. Even basic things like oil and filter changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups can make your automobile more gas-friendly.

Changing a few of your driving habits can also help you save on fuel. If you abide by the speed limit or drive just below it, you’ll use less fuel when you drive. Avoiding the temptation to accelerate quickly can lower your cumulative fuel costs as well.

When you drive with your windows open, it creates drag. Mounted bike racks and luggage racks also create drag; drag has a negative influence on your car’s fuel economy. If possible, drive with your windows closed and remove any rack that’s on your car that you’re not going to use any time soon.

When you visit our car dealership near Cleveland, OH, we’ll tell you that using a gas app is another thing you can do to save on fuel. Gas apps like GasBuddy and Fuel Finder tell you where the cheapest gas is in your area no matter where you’re currently located, making it possible for you to save regardless of whether you’re home or traveling.
