(This is the latest entry in a semi-regular feature at Snark-Infested Waters, where I point out things that should be really obvious but, somehow, are not.)
Tired of high gas prices? Here are a few tips that you should have already thought of yourself:
* Buying premium gas? Well, knock it off, dummy. I’ve never bought anything above regular in my life and I’ve not suffered for it. Save 20 cents a gallon and stop being so stuck-up about your petrol. 93 octane my pasty pink posterior…
* Angry that Exxon/Mobil is making crazy profits off of you? Then don’t buy gas there! Sacrifice your pointless brand loyalty and just buy the cheapest gas you can find (which won’t be at an Exxon or Mobil station, that’s for damn sure).
* Do you own a vehicle that’s too ridiculously huge for your actual needs? Then get rid of it and buy a normal car…you know, something with a gas tank smaller than your average above-ground swimming pool and a gas mileage rating that isn’t measured in single digits. That way you save gas, and you’ll probably knock your car payment down a few bills as well.
