Pump prices sail past the $3 mark; they climbed all the way to $3.09 for regular unleaded at some stations.
So what can you do to conserve every drop of gasoline? News 10 asked some local mechanics and here is what they said. Make sure your tires are inflated at the right pressure. Deflated tires drag down the mileage. Make sure your vehicle is turned off properly. Get rid of carbon build up.
And, add a little lubricant to your transmission can make a difference. Local mechanics say by following these steps, you can save up to four miles per gallon.
