            LIVING GREEN - Monday, June 30, 2008
-----------------------------------------------------------


Good morning, 

It's the dead of summer, and you're driving on the highway. 
With gas prices over $4 per gallon, however, you choose not 
to run the air conditioning because of the strain it will 
place on your gas tank. 

Driving with the windows open will help you conserve gas. Or 
will it? Scroll down to find out more. 

Thanks for reading, 

Your Living Green editor

* During highway driving running the AC doesn't make much 
of a difference. There would be no savings from turning off 
the air conditioning because opening the windows would 
create drag, reducing the car's normal gas mileage. 

* Consumer Reports tested the theory while driving a Toyota 
Camry at 65 miles per hour, and found that choosing air or 
windows didn't make a justifiable difference.

* That's not to say that air conditioning is always the best 
option. The Department of Energy's website suggests that 
turning off the air conditioner may improve fuel economy 
when driving at speeds under 40 mph.
