Some New Hampshire residents are easing up on their gas pedals to save money at the pump.

The U.S. Department of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy says slowing vehicles down can save between 19 cents and $1.23 a gallon.

By avoiding excessive speed, rapid acceleration and braking, mileage can go up five percent around town and 33 percent on highways.

Police are seeing a decrease in speeders and an increase in the number of motorists running out of gas on Interstate 93.
