With the unrest in the Middle East and Libya, gas prices are steadily rising. The average price of gas has jumped up about 3 cents this week around the state. AAA South spokesman Garrett Townsend has something to say about the trend.
Townsend provides tips on how to have an enjoyable and inexpensive summer this year. First, if you are a member of AAA, you can receive discounts.
Townsend says even those who are not AAA members can save money (and possibly get a little surprise) while on vacation.
Lastly, Townsend says AAA also has a calculator on their site so that you can weigh the costs of driving versus flying to your summertime destination. Visit www.aaasouth.com for ways to enjoy the benefits of a get-away without breaking the bank for gas.
