Memorial Day weekend is approaching and it’s time to hit the road. Toyota has teamed up with automotive industry expert Jeff Fortson to help make holiday travel more fuel-efficient.
According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), the national average price of gas is approximately $2.29 per gallon, a slight increase compared to last month. This increase is expected to continue as demand for gas holds steady with over 38 million drivers projected to travel this holiday weekend.
“Drivers can take simple steps to help them get the most gas mileage on their trips this Memorial Day weekend,” says Fortson, founder and editor of JeffCars.com, a site dedicated to auto education and car-buying clinics. “Taking heed to these tips will not only lead to fuel savings but will help provide a little extra money once you arrive at your destination.”
Toyota and Fortson offer six fuel-efficiency tips designed to help protect your pocket at the pump before you start a memorable road trip with family and friends.
