Staycations Are For Suckers!

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Sometimes the family vacation is put on hold because there just isn’t enough money in the budget to pay the skyrocketing costs of airfare. While gas prices aren’t faring any better, you can at least hit the road and travel the same distance you would fly for half the cost. If a ticket from Albany to Austin costs $650 for one person, the cost to drive the 1,845 miles (with current gas prices and a vehicle that gets 25 mpg) would be a much cheaper at $265.
