As the weather warms up, many people are hitting the road for summer vacation. The Alliance to Save Energy calculated that the average U.S. household will spend nearly 3,500 dollars fueling up vehicles this year, even with lower gas prices. The good news is that maintaining your vehicle and using smart driving techniques can make the gas in your tank last longer - and put a few dollars back in your pocket. And, a well-maintained vehicle emits fewer pollutants that contribute to ground-level ozone pollution on hot summer days.
