How much do you need?

About $750. Tell you what, let's round it up: how do you feel about lending me your entire life savings and half your college fund? I need to put some gas in the motor and it's nearly $4 a gallon! I'm a little short on cash this week ... and FOUR BUCKS — that's how much my triple tall decaff recaff skinny soy coffee-chino is. Hey, I'm hurting here, Pal.

I think my life savings wouldn't get you very far. Not even to the coffee shop in that gas-guzzler you drive. What you need is to USE LESS GAS. It'll save YOU money and it'll be much better for the planet. Here's how:

  • Drive less! Can't you walk to the coffee shop?
  • Carpool! Can't you share a ride with some of your buddies? You'll spend less on parking too.
  • Take the bus! The bus is that long thing with ads on the side. I'm sure you've seen one.
  • Don't run the engine when you're waiting! You don't need the engine on to run the radio.
  • Plan your trips. Don't make six journeys when one will do!
