Memorializing Automotive Travel

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jul 7th, 2008 2:45pm

Are you planning to take a road trip over the Fourth of July weekend? How much do you expect to spend on gas? I spent nearly $60 to fill my tank last week, a painful increase from a cost that used to hover around $20 just a few years ago.

Considering Downsizing to Save Fuel? Consumer Reports Suggests it Might be Better to Wait

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jul 2nd, 2008 2:39pm

We've been watching gas prices hovering around $4 a gallon for over a month now, and at last (in my neighborhood, at least), the price of regular unleaded finally jumped all the way up over to $4.50.

How far are you willing to go for all-around economy?

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jun 30th, 2008 2:26pm

A subject has come up in discussions with my colleague Rich Truesdell: He asks "Is the prospect of $5.00/gallon gas causing people to lose their sense of reality?" Apparently people are buying 13-year-old Geo Metros for more than they cost new, just because they get great gas mileage. Do you remember the Metro? Basically a rebadged, domestic version of the Suzuki Swift, the little tiny econobox was powered by ...
