Acting locally; check your tire pressure to reduce climate change (and oh by the way, save money)

Did you know?

Your tire pressure drops about 1 PSI for every 10 degree drop in temperature.  That means that by winter, your tires could be underinflated by 6-8 PSI compared to this summer – which could be 25% underinflated.  Six PSI can reduce your gas mileage by as much as 3 mpg — or even more if you drive a car that gets high gas mileage.  85 percent of drivers surveyed do not check their tire pressure regularly according to the Rubber Manufacturers Association.

So, one cool morning this weekend, check and adjust your tire pressure before you drive your car(s).  Save money – AND reduce CO2 emissions!
