The long cross-country trek with your interstate movers can be an expensive undertaking, especially with rising gas prices. Here are a few tips to minimize your spending as you embark on the open road.
Ask for Directions
If you feel like you took a wrong turn, it's a good ideas to assess the situation immediately. Pull over to a gas station or a convenience store where you can inquire if you're on the right path, and ask how to reroute if you aren't. Guessing your whereabouts as you drive around will not only waste gas, but it'll also delay the moving process.
Seek the Shortest Route
Whether you use a GPS, map or online directions service, try to find the shortest and most direct route. This will shave precious miles and hours off of your travel time and help keep your mileage down.
Listen to Traffic Report
Nothing takes a toll on your gas tank more than stop-and-go traffic. Many times roadwork or large droves of traffic can come unexpectedly. By listening to the traffic report on the local AM station, you can get constant updates about the roads you're on and advice if you need to reroute.
