drive

I recently discovered that using cruise control can save a lot of money in gas! I’ve started using it whenever possible. I live rural, with a lot of highway driving, so it’s very easy to implement and it has saved us in fuel consumption. It’s hard to say how much this can save a person, depending on how often you use it, and the make/model of your vehicle, use of air conditioning etc…. This CNN article states that there is an average fuel savings of 7% while using cruise control: http://money.cnn.com/2007/05/09/pf/gas_myths/
