Owning a car is expensive. There are the costs for maintenance, parking, car washes, auto insurance, and gas as well. In fact, depending on the car you drive you may pay us much a year for fuel as you do for your auto insurance. This especially true now, given the price hikes that followed the drone attack on Saudi Arabia's largest oil processing plant. Some people are predicting it could be weeks before prices stabilize again.

In the meantime, however, there are ways that you can minimize what you spend on your vehicle.
