Very well written Joina! I agree with all these points! With fuel prices soaring the sky, we should become more careful about using the resource. As you rightly say, we can walk the nearby place than driving to it. Oil changes once in 3 months will improve the fuel efficiency. Also, you are very much right about the unloading of the trunk(dickey).
Thanks again for sharing your valuable views!
