AAA Texas provides tips to conserve fuel

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Gas prices are climbing and you may be looking for ways to cut back on the amount of fuel you’re using.

Joshua Zuber at AAA Texas tells us a few simple tips can help you keep your gas budget under control.

“The easiest and best way to avoid high fuel consumption is to ease up on the gas and brake pedals in your vehicle. Looks ahead so you don’t have to slam on your brake pedal. You should also try to keep from accelerating too quickly. The harder you press that gas pedal, the more fuel you’re using. Think about using your cruise control whenever you can”

Zuber suggests lightening the load a bit.

“You may still have some extra items in your trunk form that weekend camping trip or drive to the beach. Taking any unused items out of your vehicle can certainly reduce the amount of fuel you’re using on your daily commute.”
