How to Be Energy-Smart About the Car You Drive

AMY MYERS JAFFE: So far, the looming global instability has not ratcheted up U.S. gasoline prices, which are generally hovering around $3.45 a gallon. But with so much war news emanating from the Middle East and Ukraine, it might still be a good time for U.S. consumers to re-evaluate the efficiency of their car compared with new models on the market. A new web-based tool, EV Explorer, can help you figure out the answer for what car would be most efficient given your daily travel patterns. EV Explorer allows consumers to compare simultaneously up to four vehicles on an energy-cost basis.
