While the prospects of spending less will likely steer more people on to the roads, saving at the pump isn't the only way drivers can save money on gas. Whether you're driving an SUV rated at 15 MPG, or a subcompact which can reach 45 MPG, you still have the ability to save a buck or two on fuel costs.
Insurance is one of the most competitive markets in the country, and in any given area you will find many auto insurance companies ready to give you their business. While that may seem intimidating, it is actually great for customers. More companies means better pricing, and the freedom to make sure you are going to have a great consumer experience.
