Gas $$ Saving Tip #10

Today's tip is one of my favorites. I think, like most Americans, I have a little lazy streak; so any tip that lets me be lazy and save money on gas--it's almost too good to be true.

Our tip for today: When travelling at highway speed, Use Cruise Control. It's not that using the cruise compared to not using it saves gas; it's that keeping a constant speed saves gasoline.

Cruise control helps keep you at a safe speed (if you set it at a safe speed!) and, if you are going a constant 55 or 65, you are being better on gas than if you are moving from 55 to 60 to 52 to...

And one more added bonus. If you set the cruise at a legal speed, you'll avoid spending money on tickets!
