Save money by slow­ing down

Penticton Herald - - LETTERS -

Dear Ed­i­tor: With gaso­line prices in the Okana­gan val­ley go­ing up all the time, there is one thing that can help.

Most of High­way 97 be­tween Peach­land and Pen­tic­ton is marked “Max­i­mum 100 km,” ex­cept for the sec­tion from Sum­mer­land to Trout Creek.

I find if I keep to the speed limit in the right lane, many ve­hi­cles rush past me do­ing well over 120 km. The higher the speed, the more fuel that’s used.

So if you slow down, you not only save fuel, but money as a re­sult.
