    Gas prices have been in the $3 per gallon range for a while now, if not higher. Everyone wants to see relief at the pump soon, but to make sure you're getting the best gas mileage possible, here are some tips.
With gas prices still at a price no one seems to like, more people are surfing the internet, hoping to stumble upon some kind of solution.

Online, you'll find ads for all kinds of gadgets that promise to make your car run more efficiently - you'll find fuel-line magnets and liquid additives that can supposedly elevate your gasoline. And they come with big boasts.

The Better Business Bureau's Tom Bartholomy reminds us, "You've got to look at those claims and just say - really? If that were true, why am I reading about it on the internet and not on the front page of the newspaper?"

The BBB says it's simple - there are no magical cheap widgets out there that will make your gas last much longer, but there are tried and true steps that you can take to help.

Change your oil and air filters regularly - that will keep impurities from damaging your engine, and healthy engines guzzle less gas.

Also, don't let that engine run idle. Engines actually warm up faster while driving.

And keep your tires inflated and aligned - your car will run smoother.
