What are your techniques? Let’s all share and get some pointers and points.

Plan to keep all driving local/minimum. No longer trips until fuel prices drop again.

I didn't. I actually used more than normal. We took the boat out for the first time this year and it's well worth the cost just to get away from things for a while.

Today is a 1969 lincoln day , plan to take a long trip into the mountains , up to our cabin and spend the weekend and then drive back . should use about 20 gallons round trip @10 miles per gallon. I plan on enjoying gasoline i bought , with the money i earned from hard work, not saving it, tomorrow belongs to other fuels, today belongs to gasoline. enjoy the life we live and the tools we have to live it.

People will always adapt, if the future brings us fuel shortages, so be it we will adapt. there is no shame in living for today.

This OP sounds like he needs to "belong" to something. all it shows me is a total lack of self esteem. you don't need to tell the world what your doing to save the world.

The reality is you don't know what i am going to do this weekend , am i going to burn up 20 gallons of gasoline or am i going to burn up 10 gallons of recycled WVO ? you will never know because i do not feel the need to tell you.I do not need to belong to your little group. some people do and some people talk.

I'm sitting in my recliner, and that certainly is saving gas, isn't it?

I have panniers on my bicycle and can carry a lot of stuff. I combine trips and save the car mostly for work.
