Although many people are now working remotely, there is still a large population of people who fall into the essential worker bracket and others such as retail for example, that still need to travel to work to serve their customers. The one cost that keeps rising is petrol. Here are a few tips on how to save yourself some money.
Keep an eye on the news
News channels are quick to report on petrol hikes or decreases. The best way to get the most out of your money before the hike is to fill up before the increase takes place. Normally a news channel will report on this a week ahead of the hike which gives you enough time to fill up your tank.
If you have clients who are flexible with their hours, consider setting up your meetings during off-peak hours of the day. This means you will spend less time in traffic, saving you petrol and money to fill up again.
Take it easy
Did you know that the heavier the weight in your car and harder you accelerate, the more petrol gets used? Try to plan your trips in advance so that you are in less of a rush to your destination. Also remember to reduce the weight in your by removing those unwanted golf clubs in the trunk.
In tough times like these every penny counts, so be smart about how you’re spending.
