Saving Gas

Some states are taking a different approach to help save gasoline, they're switching to a 4 day work week.

News10: Next month Utah will become the first state in the nation to mandate four-day work weeks for most employees.

Nearly 17,000 state workers will change their schedules to work 10 hours a day, four days a week.

"It's good on all kinds of grounds," said Gov. Jon Huntsman, R-Utah. "It's good for the environment, it's good for energy efficiency, it's good for customer service ... and it's good for our employees as well."

I would think this would lead to more gasoline usage because of the 3 day weekend. Everyone will be taking trips! Or at least I would.

Work done by Utah is really appreciable.
