Gas prices increase during the spring due to refineries repairing equipment and making more efficient fuel blends for the summer. Some sources say the national price for gas could reach $4 by the end of this week.
You work hard for your money–the last thing you want to do is spend it all on gas. Following these tips can help you save money for gas or other necessities.
- Walk or bike. Do you really need to drive to the grocery store that is just down the block? Walking or biking to nearby places instead of driving will nto only save you gas, but it will also be exercise. Double score!
- Rework your routes. Hit the grocery store, post office, or other errands on your way to or from work. That way you won’t need to leave your house multiple times after getting home from work.
- Go over your Wisconsin insurance policies. Looking over your policies with one of our agents is always a good idea. We can work with you to create a customized policy that is right for your needs and budget.
- Carpool. Send out an office memo or chat with your coworkers to see if anyone lives near you. Carpooling will save gas and you might even make a new friend or two in the process.
- Look into bus routes and other public transportation. Portage county has a great public transportation system that can save you gas money. More information can be found here.
