Your fan is probably not working correctly. When you are driving in the city, not much air is flowing freely through the nose of your car into the radiator, etc. When you are on the highway, there is a lot of air flowing in. Has your car been overheating or getting hot?

Your A/C belt may be loose and/or refrigerant may be low.

Well! for me it sound like the fan is not working, and specially at idle the condenser it get very hot. the best way to check the fan is to start the car and open the hood and with the a/c on the fan should be on. If the fan is not on... check the fan relay or the fan it self. other problem could be the office tube, for example if the high side in the a/c is under 200 psi and the low side is highter than 30 psi the office tube could be the problem in must GM cars.

Always turn in to the lane closest to you (e.g. making a right turn onto a highway you should turn into the right lane).Turning from the highway depends upon which you are going, if left turns are premitted (some require left turns from the right lane only) So you must check the rules for that particular road. Unless there are other vehicles trying to come on to the intersection then you should just simply move to the left.

Which uses more gas driving on the highway or city?

You get farther on a gallon of gas when driving on the highway, than when you drive in the city. This is because in the city you have more stop and go situations that are wasteful. The solid proof that is the irrefutable EPA sticker on all gasoline only or diesel only cars sold. Take careful note to see that the miles you get on a gallon of gas or diesel is less for city driving than it is for highway driving. Further, if you use more gas to get around town then you also cause more pollution. Specifically, you use less gas and less pollution if you do all of your shopping at one location, like a nearby mall, than driving all around town to many different stores.
