Did you know you're paying an extra 26-cents per gallon of gas for every five miles per hour you go over 50?
That's from the folks at Budget Travel, who looked at some of the most common mistakes that siphon your gas.
Another is too much luggage in and on the vehicle. Luggage on top of a vehicle can cut wind resistance, decreasing fuel economy by two-percent.
And an extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces fuel economy by one to two percent or four to eight-cents a gallon.
