    8.) Green Tip: Proper inflation saves money and energy

    Whether you’re driving a car or riding a bike, one simple step can save a bunch of energy: Keep your tires properly inflated. Efficiency is reduced 1 percent for every 3 PSI that tires are under-inflated. The Department of Energy estimates that drivers waste about 1.2 billion gallons of fuel each year simply due to under-inflation. Investing a few bucks in a tire gauge could save drivers hundreds in gas. Check your tire pressure at least monthly. Sometimes it’s that easy being green!
