System analyst, 58, Leominster, Mass.
I commute 27 miles a day, mostly [on the] highway. I used to drive 65 mph to 70 mph. I now use cruise control and set it at or below 60 mph. I have seen a noticeable gain in mileage.
I'm also trying to accelerate slowly at intersections and traffic lights. I will continue to do this even if prices go down a little. It's the right thing to do, and not all that painful.
I also have a list of things to do to make my home more energy efficient. Don't wait for Washington to solve your problems, ask yourself what you can do. NEXT: Your story
