So many Virginians will hit the highways this Thanksgiving, driving from their apartments in Lynchburg to the homes of their loved ones. In fact more than a million Virginians will take to the roads this Thanksgiving. There are so many reasons to drive safely, and conscientiously this holiday, gas mileage and safety are two of them.
The price of gas is not expected to drop at Thanksgiving in Lynchburg like it has other years. Did you know that the way you drive affects your gas mileage? So if you are concerned about your gas mileage, the answer is to drive safely.
Speeding, and aggressive speeding up and slowing down uses loads of gas. So drive carefully and conscientiously. Remember, it is the holidays and you and those around you don’t need the aggravation of a fender bender or worse, an injury this holiday season.
Right now, gas prices in the Lynchburg area sit around $3.31, which is not predicted to budge. And the national price is 58 cents higher than it was last year.
AAA says most people drive to get back home for the holidays despite gas prices. Virginians say that's because a car is still more affordable, convenient and flexible than any other way to get around.
American families spend 8% of their income putting gas in their car, according to AAA. Drive carefully and Happy Thanksgiving from Walden Pond Living.
