I am pretty excited for today's show. I've been driving my car around on fumes, waiting to put gas in it because a) every time I drive by a gas station the prices make me want to plotz, and b) I am positive that I can make the tiny bit of gas left in the car last if I just coast a little more. The record prices -- topping three dollars a gallon for regular -- have everybody wondering what works when it comes to conserving what's in your tank. So, here's what we're going to do. We're going to sort through all the snake oil out there (that fuel pill doesn't work, FYI), and tell you what really works. And, in a remarkable coinicidence, we've got another Ask Amy (different Amy) who'll give you the lowdown, as well as a guy that's tried every product out there. So go ahead and tell us what you've tried in the fight against three dollar fuel.
