If you aren’t familiar with hypermiling you should look into what it is all about. Chances are you will be hearing that term floating around quite a bit. It is a way for you to be able to cut back on the amount of fuel you consume.
Since most of us rely upon our vehicle to get us around we need to make it go further with less fuel being consumed. You may be thinking that you are already doing all you can to cut costs. You are watching the prices at the pumps and you are cutting back on when and where you drive. You may be frustrated about all of it as well.
This is because it simply isn’t always possible to cut down on the amount that you use your vehicle. You can’t change how far it is to your place of employment due to gas prices. Getting another job closer may not be possible. At the same time you may really like the job you have.
There is also the pay to consider as a new job may start you out at less than you make right now. With the economy being as low as it is right now, the job market is difficult as well. It is understandable that you may be worried about a lay off or not being needed at a particular job site. If you have been at one place for a while there is some job security in that.
You also have your other commitments such as getting kids to school, grocery shopping, and running errands. While you can arrange things to flow better you still won’t be able to completely cut these needs out of your schedule.
