CarReview is urging drivers to adopt fuel saving techniques or pay the price at the pumps, as $4 per gallon of gas arrives and the prediction of gasoline reaching $5 per gallon is not too far off.

Drivers are already using their cars less, with government figures showing a 3.4 per cent fall in gasoline sales in the third quarter of 2010 compared to the same period in 2009. But there are also significant economies to be made simply by changing driving style.

Get your H2 out of the garage, sub $2 gas is here again!

Hummer H2

I got a call this morning from my fellow 24 Hours of LeMons teammate, Timmy C, that gasoline has dropped below $2 per gallon. He thought that day would never come, and thought I was nuts when I proclaimed a year ago that it would, but guess what folks? Sometimes crazy people can be right. According to Corpus Christi, Texas has been flirting right around the $2 mark, with a few stints this morning below $2. It marks and incomprehensible collapse of the petroleum market since reaching a national high of $4.11 only three months ago.

Although this is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise financial Pearl Harbor, we hope that historically impulse-oriented, short-sighted Americans will continue to purchase fuel-efficient vehicles instead of falling back on those oversized, overstuffed two-and-a-half ton behemoths. We’re skeptically optimistic. But at least for now, enjoy the discount, and instead of continuing to stockpile Ramen noodles, go dust off that over-leveraged H2 and treat yourself to night out at Carl’s Jr!

Hypermiling - balancing gas and money“Back in the day”, to use the parlance of our times, when gasoline was a buck fifty, I used to spend hours in my Mazda RX-8 burying the RPM needle, downshifting to fourth on the freeway, and drifting through corners with hachi-roku zeal. But with the onset of over four dollar gasoline, my zeal for wasting fuel has subsided, and a new style of performance driving has taken over.

It’s called Hypermiling, and although an RX-8 isn’t the best car for this style of performance driving, when you’re averaging less than 20 miles per gallon, any improvement in fuel economy is welcome.
