					Tips on How to Save Money on Transportation

Prices go higher every year, especially the cost of gas. Transportation is one big factor that makes the
household budget difficult to cover all your expenses. Here are some guidelines to help you save money
from transportation:

1.To save money, you must always check on your vehicle regularly. A well-maintained vehicle can get you
out of trouble on repair expenses. You can actually spend only $50 on maintaining your vehicle and save up
to $800 on repair costs in a year. You can even save more if you do the maintenance yourself and not bring
your car into an auto shop.

2.If you want to save more money, it is recommended not to buy a new car. The value of a car depreciates
automatically when you drive it out off the showroom of the car dealer shop. You may buy a car that is used
at least one year. It will save you thousands of dollars to the actual worth of the car when it was new. The
owner will then pay all the depreciated value of the car.

3.Save money on buying used cars by comparing the prices of the car dealer and the actual price on the list
of the used car dealer ads. To ensure the car that you buy is well conditioned, you may ask for the help of a
mechanic to check if the car is good enough for its price. It is better to buy a used car from a person you
know and trust. This will help you make sure that you have a good deal in acquiring a car.

4.Try to compare gasoline rates. You may refuel your car with the gasoline station that offers the lowest
price on gasoline. You can even save more by pumping gas yourself and use the lowest octane in your car’s
manual. It is also recommended that you pay cash than credit cards that charge extra rates. Do not forget to
check the gas cap if it is tightened to ensure no gas is spilled out.

5.Always keep your engine tuned-up and have your tires inflated to their desired pressure to save you more
money. A well-maintained engine consumes less gas. Keep your car’s trunk clean to save more fuel. Heavy
loads in your vehicle can consume more fuel because of the excess weight it carries.

6.Try to limit the use of your car on your daily route. You may take the bus or the subway to save gasoline.
You can also save time by ignoring the traffic that you encounter everyday on the streets.
