Knowing This Number Could Save You Money

The price of gasoline has prompted many people to seek jobs closer to home, but if you'd rather start from scratch and move to a new neighborhood here's a website that you should keep handy. After you've explored a few neighborhoods, plug each prospective address into Walk Score and it will generate a map of all of the walkable amenities in the area.

The website will calculate a walk score for the neighborhood, and comparing each score will allow you to consider how much driving would be necessary in one neighborhood versus another. It's a useful tool when you consider that high gas prices aren't budging, driving less is good for the environment, and walking more is good for you. What's your neighborhood's walk score?
