This morning, as I was skimming headlines at CNN, I saw a link to a TIME magazine list of 10 ways to save on gas. First of all, there were only 9 suggestions in the list and most of them were silly. For example: wearing different shoes while you drive. And second of all, they miss the most important one. Therefore, I feel it is my duty to inform people about how to save money on gas. Ready?
1. Don’t drive so much!
That’s it. I promise that this tip will decrease the amount of money that you spend on gas. You’re welcome.
Also, I would like to point you all to this FactCheck explanation of why a gas tax holiday does not mean lower prices, it just means that profits go to oil companies rather than state governments.
This has been a public service announcement from the Martian Chronicles. Now back to your regularly scheduled, space-themed blog.
