According to my search on AOL at last count there were 107 million households with and average of 1.9 cars each. If 150,000,000 of those vehicles are driven every week that’s a lot of fuel.
I have a suggestion. There are about 16 or 17 weeks left in 2005. If we can save one gallon of fuel per car per week that’s over 2 billion gallons of fuel by the end of the year. Add in the fuel for the tankers that could be a big savings in production for this country’s very strained refinery system. That production could be used for the heating oil we’ll need this winter.
I betting that with a little planning we could all average a gallon a week savings. It doesn’t sound like much, but it will add up.
It’s a little like a chessboard. They have sixty-four squares. Put one penny on the first square, put two on the next, then four, and then eight. If you could keep that up until you got to number sixty-four you’d be a millionaire.
