Have You Changed Your Driving Habits?

I know I have, even though I was never a speed demon, I've still slowed down. I would generally go about 5 miles over the speed limit, now I drive about 5 miles under. It does make a difference and quite frankly it hasn't made that much of a difference in how long I take to get places. I also plan my trips more and have only gone certain places if I have someplace else to go in that direction. let me know how your driving habits have changed and your ideas to save gas.

Deb,
I'm old enough to remember other gas "crisis" times, so have tried to plan my running around so I don't backtrack. I also live in CA and the pollution problem is more intense here than other areas of the country.
If I have several stops to make, I try to make a circle and that takes me out and brings me home again.
Love the new blog!
Cay

I went out and picked myself up a new backpack and put air in my bike tires. Now if it is just a quick trip in town (I live in a fairly small one) I take my bike and leave the car at home. I've also slowed down the same way you have.

Great new blog, I loove forward to reading more in the future!
