The bankruptcy attorneys here at Craft Law Offices believe in helping our clients move beyond their bankruptcy, and the best way to do that is to save money and rebuild credit so that you can begin a new financial life.

One expense that takes a chunk out of our paychecks each month is the money we spend on gas. You’ve got to get to work, and you’ve got to get back home again, and not everybody is willing or able to do that on a bicycle. So, how can you get around without breaking the bank? Here are some pointers from Money Crashers on how to save gas and money:

The most obvious way to save gas is to drive less, but how can you do that? It might take a little planning and mindfulness, but combining errands and trips can help you conserve gas. If you need to go grocery shopping, think of other errands you need to run in the area, and do them all at once so you don’t have to make multiple trips.

Many people don’t realize that gas changes depending on the temperature. When gas is cooler, it’s denser, so you actually end up getting more gas from the pump than you would in hotter temperatures. Aim to get gas in the morning or evening before the temperatures outside get too hot.

Keeping your tires properly inflated can help you conserve gas. Monitor your tire pressure on a regular basis as changes in temperature affect your tire pressure. Other routine maintenance that helps fuel efficiency is changing your motor oil and filters on a regular basis.

Nowadays there are also a number of apps you can use to help save gas. From apps that find you the best gas price in your area to apps that give you the best route home, there are multiple ways your phone can help you with your gas use.
