Elaine Beno, spokeswoman for AAA Hawaii, said there are ways drivers can limit gas consumption, including removing heavy items from vehicles and keeping up with maintenance.
Changing driving habits such as hard breaking and speeding can make a difference. "The most important and often overlooked tip for getting the most out of your tank of gasoline is the way you drive," Beno said. "For every time you're going five miles over the speed limit you're using up more gasoline. You're using more gasoline to make the vehicle go faster."
