High Gas Prices? Check this….

March 20, 2012

Yes, gas prices, as you’ve surely noted, are rising. I recently read $4 gas? How to cut what you pay at MSN Money. They give a few tips that are decent, but the article is focused on gas reward credit cards.

I’m not overly excited about this idea, as we use a major credit card that gives us rewards on everything we purchase. This month, gas is the item that gives us 5% cash back every time we fill up. They talk about using an “arsenal” of gas reward cards (which I’m not going to do because I like just having two cards that we account for in Mint.com).

Along these lines, our family still tries to get gas once a week, on the same day each week, to even out the amount of money we spend each month on gas.

We also try to consolidate different trips into one trip so we’re not starting and stopping the vehicles as much or wasting time between our house and the various places we need to go.

I’m tuning up my 1986 Honda Elite 250 scooter since it gets around 50 mpg in town.

Many families really need to just limit the trips they take per month. As enjoyable as it is to go see family and friends, and other activities, during high gas prices years, it makes sense to limit those trips if needed…
