Robbery Prices: Summertime And The Gypping Is Easy! PDF Print E-mail

The distorted Ira Gershwin lyrics from Porgy and Bess certainly apply this year. Every crook from greedy Middle East oil producers to your friendly neighborhood gas station owner is out to rob you at the pumps.

In addition to loudly cursing out the station owner each time you need to gas up, the only way you can fight back is to use less of the stuff. Do local errands on foot and bike. On driving vacations, plan them closer to home, or just stay home. Also, when a car trip is necessary, get together with car-owning friends, neighbors and family to share the ride. And when you need a new car, consider an all-electric.
