TIP: Slow down and use 5% less gas

Gas prices typically go up in the summer, although they shouldn't go higher than $3 a gallon according to an article in The Bolingbrook Sun (remember last year when they topped $4?) The website offers many tips on how to save money on gas, my favorite is slow down (one I struggle with!). We use 5% more gas with every 5 MPH that we drive. I also learned that fuel economy peaks at 35-55 MPH, so slowing down really does use less gas.

Here's where you can find the lowest gas prices in your town.
