Image of overweight Americans at an outdoor car showFrom the Associated Press today, 10.25.06:

"Want to spend less at the gasoline pump? Lose some weight. That's the implication of a study that says Americans are burning nearly 1 billion more gallons of gasoline each year than they did in 1960 because of their expanding waistlines. Simply put, more weight in the car means lower gas mileage."

Save gas when you bike commute, save gas when you lose weight bike commuting.
