Planning Well And Saving On Fuel

Get up early, and leave for work early. This will give you the buffer required in order to take the route that offers you the least resistance. This means the one that has fewer stoplights, and not too much traffic. Even a small amount of gas saved each day will add up to a lot over the years.
