At the early warning shots of Gas Crisis 07, my wife and I, in our infinite wisdom, purchased two new SUVs. Brilliant. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad until the full-on war of 08. $3.89 absolutely sucks the bucks from my account. To save money, recall the Nixon Administration, and the 55 MPH Speed Limit–I SLOWED DOWN.
I went from 8 to 10 MPG–lying–10 to 12.5–lying–14 to 17.5 MPG. Yes, folks thats right 25% more gas by slowing my ass down. And what makes this even better is that my road rage has suddenly dissipated. I am not gunning for the top spot–slaying those in my path with imported fossil fuel. I am simply “Cruising Grandpa” my way to better efficiency. That way I can store all my rage for the $5/hr employee at McDonalds. As Steve Covey says, “Win – Win.”
