GETTING GREEN WITH YOUR CAR!
Here are some Ideas which will Save You Money on Gas and Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions:
GET RID OF AN UNNECESSARY CAR
The fastest way to cut your family’s expenses is to get rid of one of an unnecessary car. Consider this: The average annual cost per car (factoring in gas, insurance, maintenance, parking, etc.) is $8,580. So, if your household income is $50,000 per year and you have two cars, you are working 4 months of the year just to pay for them.
SKIP UNNECESSARY CAR TRIPS
An astonishing 91 percent of Americans commute to work alone in their car, averaging 30-miles per round trip. If every person in the U.S. commuted by carpool just one day a week or took public transportation instead of driving, we’d save $215 per car and reduce carbon emissions by 149 million tons. 40 percent of all car trips made in the U.S. are under 2 miles. Try pulling out the old bicycle or just put on your walking shoes for some of those trips.
