One topic everyone is sure to have heard about or has been thinking about recently is the rise of gas prices here in the U.S.Â I pulled up to the pump this past weekend and asked to fill it up regular.Â Well I was in for a little bit of a shock when I saw the total!Â I probably should have checked the gas price before I pulled in.Â Unfortunately it may not have made much difference as regardless of location, most people are seeing gas prices around the national average of $3.51.Â And predictions are saying we can expect to see $4 a gallon by summer!
Regardless of price, there is some great advice available on how to save on fuel costs.Â I came across a MSNBC.com article on things we can do ourselves to help keep our fuel costs down.Â One of the tips they mention is Run errands with efficiency. Â Your CoPilot Live is actually the perfect tool to use for this type of advance planning and multi-stop optimization.Â
Back in December I posted a Tip & Trick on how to use CoPilotâ€™s muti-stop trip optimization feature to create efficient routes to save time and stress when holiday shopping.Â Â Holiday shopping may be over but itâ€™s a great feature to use for a day packed with errand running and multiple stops.Â So check out the tip and start saving on fuel costs!Â Read the full blog post here:Â http://blog.us.copilotlive.net/?p=1945
