Spring Break Traveling

Highways across the state are jammed packed tonight with college kids who are ditching the books for a week of surf, sun, and sand as spring break 2013 officially gets underway. However, high gas prices are actually forcing many students to hit the brakes on their plans, to find a detour to something closer to home.

Spring break week is viewed with much anticipation for many college students. Road trips to fun and exciting places are typical activities planned for the week. With gas prices averaging about 3.50 a gallon here in the Crossroads and 3.55 a gallon in Texas, and rising, college students, including many at UHV in Victoria, are choosing to stay close to home this spring break.

According to gasbuddy.com, the average price for a gallon of gas in Houston has risen 50 cents since Christmas, and projections state that some increases are likely to continue into the summer months. Experts recommend that in order to save fuel, do not speed, do not weigh down your vehicle, which causes the vehicle to work harder and to use more gas, and avoid if possible roads containing heavy traffic and numerous traffic lights.

For any spring break traveler, being safe and spending money wisely will help to make a week meant for rest and relaxation, indeed, more relaxing. Before hitting the roads we have the cheapest gas prices in Victoria at http://www.crossroadstoday.com/content/business/gasprices/default.aspx
