How Not to Let Gas Prices Affect Your Summer Travel Plans

Published on June 23, 2022 in Features and Tips by The Car Guide

A recent survey conducted by CAA South Central Ontario has found that most Canadians will be making changes to their summer road trip plans now that gas prices are higher than $2 per litre.

Overall, 76 percent of those surveyed said they have a road trip planned within the province this year, while 26 percent are preparing for an out-of-province road trip, and 23 percent will head to the U.S.

Now, among those who are planning a road trip, 64 percent of these respondents said gas prices are likely to impact their plans.

While some are limiting the number of trips they take overall or driving shorter distances, some travelers are planning around gas prices, and others are adjusting their budget to accommodate fuel prices during their trip.
