Gas Prices On The Move

Gas prices are on the move again. According to AAA, prices in Texas have shot up 2 cents over the last week to a record $1.62 a gallon.

The high prices leave many feeling helpless but there are a few things you can do to keep costs down. To get the most out of your driving, professionals recommend five things.

First keep your engine tuned properly. Check and replace air filters regularly. Keep your tires filled to the correct level. Use the recommended grade of motor oil for your car. And monitor your driving habits.

Most of the checks are done while getting your oil changed or tires rotated but it is never a bad idea to ask. AAA expects the price of gas to continue to rise until labor day weekend.
