According to the Department of Energy, aggressive driving -- rapid acceleration and excessive braking -- wastes gas.
The department says your gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph.
By using cruise control it will help you maintain a constant speed, which can also save gas.
A simple tune-up on your car can improve your gas mileage by an average of 4.1 percent.
