Even Small Improvements in Fuel Efficiency can Help

Often it seems that the opposite sides of the global warming argument must be mutually exclusive. However everyone likes to save money; furthermore, if it just so happens that small changes in lifestyle, behavior, etc. fatten our bank accounts while helping to save the environment, we can all relish the win-win.
By now everyone knows that the combustion of gasoline produces carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. The U.S. Department of Energy’s website www.fueleconomy.gov has a multitude of information about how to save money and potentially help the environment simultaneously through practical transportation practices.
The link: www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/savemoney.shtml through this website demonstrates the monetary savings induced by fuel efficiency with an interactive fuel savings calculator. It is a great way to compare the amount of money that may be spent by vehicles with differing miles per gallon ratings or just to get an idea of your current vehicle’s fuel costs.
Not sure you alone can make a difference to the environment through gasoline conservation and fuel efficiency? www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/contentIncludes/co2_inc.htm explains how a gallon of gas can produce 20 pounds of carbon dioxide!
