Day Four: Checked Car for Proper Tire Inflation

Heading out on a weekend road trip with my Grandmother tomorrow. Took her car to the mechanic today and checked the tires for proper inflation.

Did you know that approximately 37 million cars and 29 million trucks have underinflated tire?. A motorist, according to AAA, who drives an average of 12,000 miles annually on tires that are underinflated by five to eight psi (pounds per square inch) is wasting up to 50 gallons of gasoline, equating to $141.50 (at $2.83 a gallon) a year.
