Potential savings: 28 Cents Per Gallon

Driving over all those potholes created during the winter months can easily throw your vehicle’s wheel alignment out of whack. This can not only cause a car’s tires to wear out more quickly, but it also forces the engine to work harder, which can reduce gas mileage by as much as 10%. If you notice your car pulling to one side or the steering wheel is off-center, take your car in for an alignment, pronto.
