You can save a lot of
gasoline -and a lot of
money -if you use the phone
before you use your car.
By calling ahead, you
can be sure the restaurant
is open ... the store has
what you want . . . or the
friend you want to visit is
home-before you waste
time, gas and money on an
unnecessary trip. On the
average, you waste about
a dollar's worth of gas on
every unnecessary trip-

and just two wasted trips
a week can cost you more
than $100 worth of gas
a year.
Saving energy is easier
than you think, and with the
rising energy costs we're
facing today, it's never
been more important. So
the next time you pick up
your car keys and head for
the door, ask yourself
whether a phone call could
save you the trip-and
the wasted gas.
