      Gas prices here range from $3.09 – $3.19. Everyone says it will be $4.00 by summer. As to gas mileage just combine trips as much as possible and re-learn how to drive. When accelerating from a stop do not “punch” it but accelerate gradually. Do not slam on the brakes for a stop, anticipate the stop and coast into it as much as possible. Use cruise control as much as possible even if it is only for 15 min. Back off on the speed and pay attention to it, I forget where I read it but for every 5 miles per hour you are over the speed limit your gas mileage takes a percentage hit. Just basic common sense stuff.
