Is this the ‘Year of the Road Trip’?

With summer right around the corner, many families across the country have already begun planning their family vacations. Over the past few years, with gas prices being high, most people have stayed closer to home or booked flights and headed out to their destinations. However, due to the recent drop in the price of gas, an article from the TheStreet.com suggests this year might be “The Year of the Road Trip.”

Road TripsAccording to the article, Gas prices throughout the country are less than $2 dollars per gallon, which is more than $0.75 cents cheaper than a year ago. Comparing round-trip flight prices to how much it would cost you in gas to get around the country, you would be hard pressed to argue that flying would be cheaper. Plus, by taking your trip with a trailer in tow or with a full RV, you don’t have to deal with tight confines of an airplane. Instead, you can stretch out and not feel squeezed into a small plane seat, allowing you to relax in comfort and style.

With the money you save from driving, you can also to do more while you’re on vacation. Depending on where you go, you could afford to spend another day in the amusement park or you could spring for a nice dining experience instead of living on diners or fast food. In addition to all of this, you have more freedom to move about your vacationing area. Unlike a destination vacation, where your trip keeps you relatively confined in one city or region, with the mobility of having your own vehicle on a road trip, you could travel the city and outlying towns and see more than you could before without having to worry about your wallet.
