My parents were driving over the weekend with the windows open and I came up with another bunch of questions. With the windows open, would you use more gas than with them closed? I figured that when the windows are open and wind is blowing in, the wind is pushing in the opposite direction that the car is going. So, wouldn’t you have to push more on the gas to keep up your speed? Then again, I don’t drive so I don’t know if what I say is true or not. Going to the next question, if you use more gas with the windows open, would it be better for the environment with the windows closed and air conditioning on, just as bad, or worse? I could use this information from the second question for a Girl Scout project in my community someday and I hope I can! As a Girl Scout, I strive to make the world a better place (as stated in the Girl Scout Law) in many ways including beach cleanups, community service projects, etc. I would like to use this information in a community service project or even my Gold Award (the highest award given to a Girl Scout) in the near future so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could answer my questions. Thanks!
