>>Triple-A Offers Tips For Hot Drivers
(Fayette County, PA) -- Triple-A is offering Western Pennsylvania drivers tips on keeping their vehicles cool during periods of excessive heat. The auto club says that drivers have a natural temptation to blast the air conditioning while riding in their vehicle but that can come at the expense of fuel economy - a pricey proposition with soaring gas prices. Triple-A suggests considering running the A/C at a moderate level if driving with the windows down just isn't an option. They also recommend trying to park in covered or shaded areas to keep the vehicle cool when not in use.
