Question bad Gas Mileage and shaking in my tire

This is really concerning me (compass 07) when this first started (less and less mileage) i replaced the spark plugs and the air filter and immediately got results. i was happy but NOW my enging kind of shakes when im at a light (with the AC on) and my front tire shakes a bit when im turning and braking (my abs lights ar on could that be the problem) PLEASE HELP im going for an oil change today hoping that will fix things. (the shaking and gas mileage)

The wheel shaking may be a bad tie rod end or ball joint. Lift the the vehicle up and see if there is play up and down then side to side of the wheel. As for the gas mileage, Im getting pretty horrible gas mileage myself. I just took a trip up to NY from NC and doing 70 mph, I got 17.7 mpg. Im quite dissapointed.
