Today’s Idaho Statesman newspaper has an article written by Mark Williams of The Associated Press. It gives some encouragement about the fuel prices we’re likely to see this summer. It says “gas prices are poised to go down as Memorial Day approaches”. That’s welcome news and I’m sure we all hope that will be the case as we start to think about traveling to our favorite recreation sites.
The article also points out that the cost of gas in Idaho and 9 other states averages more than $3.00 per gallon. Why are Idaho’s fuel prices so high? We could probably spend a lot of time trying to figure that out and never get to the real answer. The bottom line is this – driving this summer will NOT be cheap, no matter what gas prices do, so you need to do everything within your power to keep your fuel expenses as low as possible.
Maintenance on your car or pickup is a key factor in gettting maximum fuel economy. There is nothing else you can do to squeak out better miles per gallon than to maintain your car. So what should you look for to insure you’re getting all you can out of every hard earned $3.00 + that you spend on a gallon of gas? Read on for helpful articles, a short video and some shopping tips to help answer that question.
