Gas Prices


Colorado - US

July 14, 2011 - PRLog -- High gas prices are a reality for everyone, but for a senior on limited income, rising gas prices are even tougher to get a handle on. The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released a new article that shows seniors just how to curb the use of gas and provides them with tools for locating the best gas prices around town.

Excerpts from article:

While there is not much one can do about the price of gas, there are plenty of money saving tactics that seniors can put into place long before the tank hits empty. Many of these tips are good for fuel efficiency and make your car run better and last longer. This    translates to less money spent on gas and car repairs over the long term.

Tips Especially for Seniors:
•  If you are a veteran, you can gas up on military bases and posts around the United States, often for less money.
•  Consider running errands with family or friends who need to go to the same stores or retail areas.
•  Plan doctor appointments, lab tests and pharmacy visits all on the same day to consolidate the number of trips you have to make.
•  Run several errands in one trip. Plan the route in advance to make sure you aren’t back-tracking or haven’t forgotten an important errand.

Try these thrifty gas price locator tools:
AAA – Offers their trademarked Trip Tik® Travel Planner tool for streamlined trip planning, information about gas prices in your area and help in locating restaurants, hotels and other attractions across the country. – Lists the lowest gas prices in your area, tracks industry trends, has a “Trip Cost Calculator” that will estimate the amount you’ll pay for gas and shows fuel prices nationwide with their “Heat Map” tool.
