Watt Watchers of Texas: Texas is Too Good To Waste™

Tire Efficiency

June 3, 2019

Once school is out, lots of families hit the road through the summer months. Whether by car, train, or plane, lots of Texans take advantage of the wide open space to travel and explore new places. Watt Watchers is taking the month of June to look at transportation.

Looking first at private automobiles, America is driving around on under-inflated tires, according to a recent survey. Under-inflated tires lower gas mileage, wasting millions of dollars each year. Under-inflated tires are also a major safety hazard. Thousands of accidents each year may be caused by poor handling due to under inflated tires.

Watt Watchers has two activities focused on auto tire pressure, which are appropriate for school or home use. And other activities relating to transportation are collected under the Transportation theme.
