LOS ANGELES, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- National gas prices have been falling consistently since June of 2014, and have already dipped to record lows nationally and here in California. This is great news for automotive commuters, but also highly beneficial for anyone planning a trip in 2015. Until recently, and all the way back to the start of 2011, the average national price of gas had been over $3 a gallon and much more in most California cities, so traveling by car or van was often a more costly way of transporting a large group across state lines than by plane. Yet, with these new low gas prices, traveling on the open road has quickly become the most economical option for groups of all sizes. Particularly for large families or traveling groups, companies like LA based Van Rental Center provide affordable van rentals in Los Angeles to allow travelers to capitalize on the outstanding fuel prices.
Many would assume that airline travel would also become more affordable with new low, oil prices. After all, fuel is often the number one expense for airlines. While the costs vary widely based on the individual airline and the current price of oil, many estimates put the percent of airline expenditures going to fuel at around 35%. Yet, according to a piece published by CBS Money Watch in October, airline fares do not correlate with fuel prices as passengers would hope. Airlines have been struggling to profit for years, so low fuel prices are seen as a way for them to finally bring their numbers into the black, rather than passing the savings on to the customer.
With a van rental from Van Rental Center, the customer is entirely in control of the gas expenditures. Whether it's a business that needs a 15 passenger van rental from LAX to transport clients around the city, or a family renting a mini-van for a road trip, customers are able to seek out the cheapest prices to maximize their savings.
Low gas prices also allow individuals and families to save big on long distance moving costs. When gas prices were high, people would pay a moving company to ship their items. But these companies have fixed costs that don't allow them to significantly lower prices when gas prices go down. Now, people facing a move are realizing it has never been so practical to get a cargo van rental from Van Rental Center and do the driving themselves. Van Rental Center provides their customers with a variety of drop off locations including San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas and Phoenix.
While many thought that gas prices would push the great American road trip towards extinction, these new low prices have made traveling by van more affordable than it's been in years. For more information on Van Rental Center, call 1-855-267-VANS or visit their website at www.vanrentalcenter.com.
