As we all know, gas prices are reaching painful levels. Pundits predict regular unleaded could rise to $5. That's probably a "given" this year. Four dollars will almost certainly be the price when we travel north with our entourage of three vehicles. So, how much is that trip north going to cost? Um....well, probably about $500. That's kind of a breath-taking number unless you consider the Theory of Relativity. It's all relative, ya know?
The graphic shows the current price of a one-way ticket from Phoenix to Idaho Falls in April this year. As you can see, it would cost over $600 for both os us to fly one way up there--and that's with only a carry on bag. Add two bags each and that's going to cost another $100 for a total of at least $700. So, $500 is really not too shabby to get us and all our flotsam and jetsam up to River City. It's all relative!
Have a great day & Many Cheers, jp
