Americans burn 2.9 BILLION gallons of gas each year, worth $78.2 billion through idling alone. A good rule of thumb is if you’re going to sit for more than 12 seconds, turn off the car and re-start.
Some communities, schools, churches & businesses have a “no idling zone” to cut down on emissions.
Dirty Jerz New Jersey & NYC have limited idling times although no one really enforces it.
