AUSTIN (KXAN) - Summer may be nearing its end but the triple digit days are far from over. To help motorists save money and keep the air clean, TxDOT is partnering with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for the statewide "Drive Clean Across Texas" clean air campaign.
The campaign aims to keep the air clean and save money on gas. TxDOT's Chris Bishop joined KXAN and offered some gas-saving tips.
"Keep your tires inflated, keep your vehicle properly maintained and if you get one of those check engine lights, have that taken care of because an oxygen sensor for example can cut your fuel economy by 40 percent."
