ATLANTA — Many drivers have likely noticed they're paying more for gas than they were just a few years ago, with supply chain issues coupling with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine causing oil prices to increase.
Luckily, AAA is offering a variety of tips for drivers to help them save fuel as the price at the pump continues to intensify.
The company added that on Thursday the average price for gas in the state of Georgia was $3.60 per gallon.
While drivers can't control that price, AAA mentioned some changes Georgians are making to save at the pump:
- 34% are driving less often
- 23% are driving shorter distances
- 23% are participating in fuel rewards programs
- 21% are doing combined trips
Other money-saving tips include:
How to save fuel as you drive:
- Make sure your vehicle is maintained and at optimal fuel economy.
- Combine errands to limit driving time and extra trips.
- Take it slow. AAA said fuel economy diminishes significantly at highway speeds above 50 mph.
- Drive conservatively and avoid aggressive driving, as things like acceleration and speeding will reduce your fuel economy as well.
