Editor’s note: Each week, one of Bankrate’s personal finance reporters is sharing a new way to save and chronicling the savings journey. This week, I’m reporting on the experience I had as a car pool participant. Read on to see what happened.
If you’re like me, you’re probably not a fan of the daily work commute drama: the accidents that attract slow-driving rubberneckers and make you late to the office, the psychos swerving from lane to lane, the people feeding their face or applying makeup.
But having a co-worker along for the ride makes things a little less insufferable.
Ready to save some money (and potentially retain your sanity)? Maybe it’s time to try carpooling. You can also pick up a gas credit card for extra savings at gas stations.
