Hey, McCain! Arnie Agrees with Obama on Tire Pressure

John McCain gave Barack Obama a hard time when Obama suggested keeping your tires inflated would save energy. However, what is true is that while it's not going to save a ton, we need all the help we can get, and even the EPA says that proper inflation can save about 3.3% of your fuel costs.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a backer of GOP presidential candidate John McCain, thinks it's a good idea, too, with an Indiana government web site recommending it.

And finally, there's Arnold Schwarzenneger. Yes, the California governor has filmed a message for for the launch (Monday) of the new site, ecodrivingUSA.
"You can reduce your fuel costs by more than 15%. And I am talking about simple things, like proper tire pressure, avoiding rapid starts and stops, and keeping your engine tuned.

In fact, if all Americans practiced ecodriving, the reductions in C02 emissions would be an equivalent to heating and powering nearly 8 cities the size of Los Angeles."
