Slow down: Obey traffic laws and drive the speed limit; speeding increases fuel use by up to 33%.
Carpool: Carpool with neighbors or co-workers as frequently as possible to reduce fuel use and daily wear on your car.
Maintain tires: Tires that are in good shape reduce road resistance and help cars to operate more smoothly.
Electric and Electric Hybrid Vehicles
Driving an electric vehicle or a hybrid electric vehicle reduces carbon dioxide emissions and gasoline consumption, therefore saving you money and reducing your impact on the environment. There are federal rebates available for EV investment. In Georgia, Georgia Power and Jackson EMC offer rebate programs to households that invest in electric vehicles or electric vehicle charging stations.
