You’ve already experienced it recently at the pump, and you can expect it to continue through the warm weather driving season. So, what can you do about it? Not a hell of a lot, especially if you plan to go long distance road trips.

But just maybe for short hops you can make small dents in the robbery machine at the gas station. For instance, trips to the store. If it isn’t too far, make it a hike instead of driving. Or do a bike ride.

Another money-saving idea is car-pooling. Get together with family, friends and neighbors to share the ride and save. Go to busy dining and entertainment events with Uber, Lyft and other on-call services, and save on inflated gas and parking costs.
