Planning a family vacation this summer? With gas prices going up, and no end in sight, you may ask, “Is it cheaper to drive?” I’ve found an excellent tool by AAA to answer that question: www.fuelcostcalculator.com
Simply type in your starting point and destination and ‘calculate’. By entering your car’s make, model and year, you get a really good estimate of how much to allot for gas. It also shows average gas prices by region. If you have an older car, why not rent a newer, more fuel efficient car? AAA members get discounts at several rental car agencies.
P.S. AAA members get discounts on many hotel chains such as Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriott.
