Save Gas, And Your Life By Cruising Grandpa

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.”
