According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s website fueleconomy.gov, one of the easiest ways to maximize your car’s fuel efficiency is to simply follow the speed limit. While, yes, aggressive driving can create unsafe road conditions for you and drivers around you, you’re also wasting gas and money. Think of it this way: For every 5 mph you drive at speeds over 50 mph, you’re wasting around $.18 per gallon in gas. So, if you drive 70 mph in a 50 mph zone, that’s wasting $.72 cents per gallon. Follow the speed limit to save money and save lives.
