WOODBURY - If you want to go green on your daily drive to and from work, stick to the speed limit!
Experts say for every five miles you drive above 60 mph, it is the equivalent of paying 20 cents extra per gallon of gas. They also say to spend time in traffic as ‘slow and go’ instead of ‘stop and go.’
