Making "Cents" on the Road

The Texas Department of Transportation's "Drive Clean Texas" campaign has a new Web application to help save you money and the environment. Studies from two years of focus groups show that Texas drivers want to find easy ways to save money and the environment. "Roadcents" will guide Texas drivers to take simple steps to reduce car and truck emissions that contribute to air pollution. The app is available for smart phones and on computers.  Driving a vehicle that needs maintenance can add $100 to annual gas spending, while underinflated tires increase vehicle emissions and can add an extra $90 a year in fuel costs. TXDOT's Kelli Reyna says it's not only good for your wallet, but also to decrease air pollution.
