Those looking for spare change to cover the skyrocketing price of gas might be able to save some money just by changing their driving habits.
Thomas Crosby, spokesman for AAA Carolinas, said it's relatively easy to save money by doing simple things such as obeying the posted speed limit.
"I think most people may know about it, but they don't want to practice it," Crosby said. "I think we're in a hurry to get from Point A to Point B and one of the main ways of conserving gasoline is slowing down and not going over 65 miles per hour."
Crosby said people drive cars in a less-efficient manner than they were designed, which means they aren't getting as much out of each gallon of gas as they could.
Never miss a local story.
The difference, he said, can make a big difference in dollars.
