Welcome.

What car do you have, do you have any plans on modding or are you just adjusting your driving style?

Welcome to the forum

I herd on the news the other day new oil wells was being drilled
and less gas was being bought so the price was going up.

That didn't make sense, in my thinking it should go down

supply and demand

I would suggest reading the 65+ efficiency mods and 100+ hypermiling tips at the top of the screan. There is alot of good info but i think the most important ones are: don't drive faster than 50mph if you don't have to, if you have to stop soon let off the gas earlier and let the cars energy get you there and avoid idling.

Welcome! The biggest gains will come from discipline of your mind over matter.

Sometimes, its hard to go against the norm, but champions in any sport must have
a mental tenacity to push through!

As you start to gain mpg's, your sensitivity will also increase.
