There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy. Making sure your tires are properly inflated — simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling — if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You’d actually save just as much!
Hey, I agree that maintaning your vehicle will increase your gas mileage but it won't come close to saving the estimated 20,000,000 barrels of oil a day that we Americans consume.
