Tune-ups and tire gauges

That's Obamas solution for increasing our supply of domestic oil.

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.
