Give Summer Gas Prices the Slip
To keep air pollution to a minimum, the EPA sets more stringent regulations for the composition of gasoline during summer. This translates to higher costs for gas stations; they very graciously pass the buck to consumers in the form of increased gas prices.
Avoid paying too much at the pump by choosing alternative modes of transportation during your summer travels. Take a train or bus to your destination – not only is mass transit more efficient, it also eliminates the stress of sitting in traffic. Once you arrive, consider low-carbon transport like walking or biking.
