Don’t let today’s high gas prices keep you at home this Memorial Day Weekend or put the kibosh on a summer road trip, says the Alliance to Save Energy. Nationwide, the average price for a gallon of unleaded gas is currently more than $3.80 – that’s lower than a week ago or a month ago, but about a dollar more than last year at this time.
Those gas expenditures can add up, observes Alliance President Kateri Callahan: “The Alliance to Save Energy has calculated that the average U.S. household will spend about $3,500 to power its vehicles this year – $800 more than last year. This means that almost 7% of an average household’s income is used paying for gasoline.That can be a burdensome amount for many Americans. But simple fuel efficiency measures can keep more dollars in your pocket and even extend the life of your vehicle.”
