well both. depends on the climate of where you live, drive, etc you get your best gas mileage supposedly anywhere between 55-60mph. at least, according to Reader's Digest. if you're driving slower than 55, u can roll with the windows down, but if you're doing 55+above use the AC. if i remember correctly. personally if the weather's good, i like feeling the wind, if it's not too muggy/humid.

Past couple days here in Georgia have been awful with this wave of heat going around. I walk outside and it feels like all the cool air in my body gets sucked out. So naturally I keep my windows up/AC on. And secondly the bugs around here are awful if you are driving lower than 60mph...wasps and crap getting sucked into my cab

I am a "Windows Down" in the Summer-
However...

Living in San Angelo (West Texas), where the dirt kicks up every 15 minutes from construction, the wind, and with the military base being out in the industrial area where big rigs tend kick up funnels of dirt, I tend to roll my windows up w/AC around those areas till I am in town or on the highway. The reason for this is because my previous vehicle would end up with dust on the inside and would hate having to dust it the interior almost everyday.

Long story short, windows up/AC on only where dust may seep through my vehicle. Heat isn't a factor for me. Also I wonder if there are others on here that have a similar reason, haven't had time to go through every single post

Judging by your sig I wouldn't have guessed you're a gas mileage conscious person haha

I enjoy the wind with the windows down around town, I always choose windows down UNTIL it gets uncomfortably hot and/or humid. It's really a simple solution. AC is for comfort, so once you've broken your comfort threshold, turn it one, BAM, there you have it.
