Ways to Save on Gas in Chicago, Illinois
Unfortunately, warmer weather means higher gas prices across the nation. Fortunately, McGrath Lexus has come up with a few clever solutions to help you save more money on fuel throughout the spring and summer months.
The first tip is actually an app you can download to your smartphone. GasBuddy is a cleverly designed application for the optimization of gas pricing in your local area. What you do is enter your zip code or current location and GasBuddy compares the prices of stations nearby and those within range of your current fuel levels. Highly reliable and accurate in urban areas, GasBuddy’s utility is slightly more limited as you traverse through rural areas due to the lack of users. Still, GasBuddy is a great friend of the fuel-conscious Chicago driver.
Changing your driving habits is also a reliable method of lowering gasoline costs. When you accelerate unnecessarily — as when you are in a hurry or are simply driving aggressively — a lot of fuel goes to waste. Furthermore, if keeping a top speed above 60 mph is not absolutely necessary, don’t do it. By learning these habits, you will travel more miles on the same amount of fuel. Indeed, many of our newer models at McGrath Lexus encourage these habits with their variable driving and suspension modes.
