Thorp, spokesperson for the Automobile Club of
Southern California. "Reducing consumption could                 Claremont McKenna College

Californians currently use 45 million gallons of
gasoline a day, but the state's refiners only                         Harvey Mudd College
produce 43 million gallons, according to State                            Darryl Yong
Energy Commission figures. The remaining
gasoline has to be imported at a higher cost.

Using an average of 22 miles to the gallon,                               Alfred Yeck
motorists need to cut 44 miles from their driving
each week. The Auto Club suggests the following
ways to save two gallons a week:
                                                                        Scripps College

1. Car pool or use public transit. Leaving your                       Susan Castagnetto
vehicle at home one or two days a week is a quick
way to meet the two-gallon goal.
2. Slow down. Research shows that speeding
uses more gasoline if your commute include more
than 20 miles of freeway driving.
3. Combine errands so you can do most of your
shopping in one place.
4. Shop online. Save trips to the store by                                Your ETC
shopping, banking, buying stamps and paying bills
