Pizza Delivery Driver Shows Us How to Save Gas

“Gas prices are taking over America like an epidemic, but during these tough times, imagine having to drive all over town for work using your own vehicle and your own gas money. Joseph Kellow has been delivering pizza’s for the original Gus’s in Tempe for 7 months, reported ABC15.com. With 15 to 20 deliveries a day, Joseph puts a lot of wear on his car, but it’s the gas that hurts the most.Kellow spends about $20 a day on fuel, which makes saving gas while driving a top priority.”

“The first step in saving gas while driving is to travel lightly. Removing excess weight can reduce your fuel consumption by 1 to 2 percent.  The next step is to avoid aggressive driving which can reduce your fuel economy by up to 33 percent. Avoiding abrupt starts and stops is something Kellow practices on a daily basis. ‘If you can get to a light and continue moving, you are saving a lot more,’ he said. Finally, slow down. Now we all have places to be, but driving faster results in more money spent at the pump. According to AAA, for every 5 miles per hour you go over 60 mph is like adding an extra 24 cents per gallon to your fuel costs.”
