Thanksgiving Travel Can Be A Gas....Saver

How can you save gas during holiday travel? Many ways!


 
According to AAA 48.7 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more away from home during Thanksgiving and the weekend, a 1 million increase over last year when 47 million traveled for the holiday. That's a lot of gas!
With gas at a premium cost this year and the planet in need of less emissions here are some simple useful tips to help you conserve and cut those costs Thanksgiving and everyday:
Saving gas is a gas!
  •       Travel together in groups to your thanksgiving destination
  •       Plan your trip: Use the most efficient route
  •       Have a local dinner or drop in for neighbors
  •       When preparing for your event combine errands, and trips.
  •       Carpool errands with a friend and you will both save on gas and have fun!
