Goodyear says check your tire pressure, it's cold out

Keeping your vehicle's tires inflated to the correct pressure is one of the simplest ways to make sure you're not wasting fuel unnecessarily as you drive. Most drivers know this, even if they don't take the time to actually check the PSI in their tires every week or two (and which is the better tire gauge, from a green perspective: the old fashioned stick that doesn't use batteries but isn't entirely precise or a new digital pressure reader that does require batteries and gives you your PSI to the third decimal point?).
So it's not exactly news to tell you, dear reader, to get make sure your tires are properly inflated. But, as Goodyear notes in a media advisory yesterday, this is a cold time of year for most of North America, and lower temperatures can cause tire pressure to drop by a pound or two for every ten degrees the mercury drops outside. This was just a reminder. And now back to your regularly scheduled posts.
