Road trips are the quintessential American vacation. After all, when you live in a country as vast and wonderfully diverse as the United States of America, who wouldn’t want to traverse its shores, mountains, deserts, and grassy plains? According to a survey conducted by AAA, about six in 10 Americans are likely to take a road trip this summer, if gas prices stay the same. Better news from AAA, summer 2015 gas prices have the potential to be the lowest they’ve been in a decade, if the cost of crude oil drops again. It appears the time has finally come again to hit the road with family and friends.
While watching National Lampoon’s Vacation is a great first step to prep for a road trip, we have created a helpful infographic with a pre-road trip checklist to ensure Americans are ready to make the most out of their summer adventures.
