Gas prices are basically about $2 per gallon cheaper than they were most of this summer.
What if, between now and the end of the year, we all took half of our gas savings and gave it to worthy charitable causes? Basically, what if, for every one gallon of gas we buy at the "new" prices, we give back $1 to a worthy cause?
Could we make a significant change in our community?
Think about it this way ... my rough guess is that, in my hometown, there are 10,000 vehicles. Over the next six weeks, those vehicles will drive approximately 12 million miles (based upon 200 miles a week). If we figure those vehicles average 20 miles per gallon, that is 600,000 gallons of gas. That would be $600,000 going into the coffers of local charities -- and almost all of those charities are hurting big-time for funds right now.
Think about it. We really could make a difference.
