Tips to Beat High Gas Costs

I am sure that you have noticed the unbelievable increase in gas prices in Vancouver.  If these prices have left you scratching your head and checking your wallet, you are not alone.  As the premier eco-friendly dry cleaners in Kitsilano, we would like to offer you the following cost saving tips so you can save some money and beat these high gas costs.

Drive Less

The easiest way to save money at the pumps is to consume less fuel.  This may be easier said than done, but with Vancouver’s excellent transit system and a little pre-planning you may be surprised how easy it is to find a public transit route that works for you.  In addition to public transit, you can also curb your reliance on gas by:

  • Walking to your local grocery store, work or other places where you may have used your car.
  • Find alternate methods of transportation such as a bicycle – there are many convenient and excellent bike lanes that connect the entire city.
  • Completing a wide range of errands at one time. Instead of several different trips to your grocery store, hardware store etc., try to establish a route that will burn the least amount of fuel and a schedule that will let you complete many of these tasks in sequence.


Carpooling can be an effective way to save money at the pumps and still give you the convenience of your car. Another bonus of carpooling is that you can use the much faster HOV lanes that exist.  Try to find a neighbour or work colleague that is interested and understands the advantages of carpooling.  Not only will you save money, you may make a new friend and find that those long commutes to work are not only faster but a lot friendlier.
