Here's the scoop on Beat High Gas Prices Now!
“In "Beat High Gas Prices Now!" environmental lifestyle expert Diane MacEachern provides us with a whole host of tips on saving money and limiting the impact of our driving on the planet. The guide is written in a pithy, positive voice that, unlike many environmental missives, is free of guilt inducing language about the evils of driving and fossil fuel addiction. That isn't to say that Ms. MacEachern doesn't address the ecological consequences of cars, but she does so in a way that will make sense to drivers unused to considering the environmental implications of their everyday choices. I really like the book! It is so straightforward and easy to digest and
skim. Perfect for budding treehuggers.

"Go out and buy 100 copies of this book. Keep one for yourself, and give the rest to everyone you know. Then read it cover to cover. You'll save all kinds of money, feel good about what you're doing to cut back on the amount of gasoline you use, and be amazed at how easy it is. This is the best gas-saving book I've ever seen. Don't waste any more time. Just go out and get it!"

Author of over 70 books on bargain shopping, Sue Goldstein, The Underground Shopper (R), loves a deal and tells all where to go to save the dough. But not only is she concerned about saving money, but saving energy, too. Says Sue: "Diane MacEachern's book is a great topic of conversation. She has done her homework. The book is an easy read, easy on the pocketbook, too. Diane has tracked down everything you need to know to make your gas dollars last longer and help you drive farther on a gallon of gas. Everyone needs to save money on gas and MacEachern offers the simplest, easiest read on how to do it. It's a quick read with lasting results. I'd say that alone is "such a deal!" As I've said before, Diane is the epitome of my own motto, "You don't have to be cheap to love a bargain...you have to be smart!"

“Diane MacEachern unlocks the secrets of saving money and the planet at the same time — while still getting where you want to go when you want to get there. If every driver would read this short but power-packed book, we might even start to put the brakes on global warming.”

"If there's any book that makes the case for "finding" fuel by driving smart instead of drilling new oil wells, this is it. Read it, use it, and pass it along."
Cindy Shogan, executive director, Alaska Wilderness League
"For some, 'energy security' means drilling for oil in the Arctic
Wildlife Refuge. Diane MacEachern knows the real answer is in her 'six
Ds' of smarter auto selection and use and, of course, the seventh "D" --
drilling for results around Detroit "
Kevin J. Coyle, Vice President for Education
