That is a myth. That DOES not cause more battery drain.

Whether open apps cause battery drain or not, here's how to close them:
Double click the home button. You'll see the open apps on the bottom, with the most recently opened one on the left. Hold its icon down for a second or two, then click the red dashes in the upper left to close the apps.

Thanks Sberman for your advice. Another question to this issue ? Why should we keep all of those Apps open without us to know they were open? I am still thinking, it will drain the battery down, if many or some of them are still open sending and recieving information on the screen or to the website. Is there any way to close them definitely as soon we finish using them?

No, the only way to close them is as I described. You can overtly double click the home button and close an app once you decide "I'm done with this for now.", but clearly that's not what's intended by the designers. The price you would pay is having to wait longer to start the app next time, and forgetting the context that was in place when you last used it.
Generally speaking, mauijiminar is correct ahd open apps don't significantly contribute to battery drain. Things that can really drain your battery are, for example, apps that are open and continuing to use location services. You can see some of these by looking at Settings > Privacy > Location Services and see which ones have little arrows next to them. Probably the biggest power hog would be setting a reminder of the form "Remind me to ... when I leave home."
