Tanks A Lot!

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011


Once again I am writing about gas prices and how they affect your vacation plans. Now in a previous blog I taught you all about the math and hopefully you learned that the rising prices really do not add that much more to your vacation budget. But just in case I haven’t swayed you yet, I have talked Mark and Amy into running a Tanks A Lot special for guests who stay with us. This special offer gives you a $10 gas card when you stay one night, a $20 gas card with a two night stay, $30 with three nights and I guess you can do the math from there! It is just a way for all three of us to say thanks for choosing us and we appreciate your business. Please remember that you must mention this special when you book your room and it is not good with any other offers or discounts. So I am standing by to greet you when you arrive and will have your gas card waiting!...

Let’s pretend you are coming to Bath from the Philadelphia area, approximately 445 miles, and your car gets 25 mpg. When gas prices were around $3.00 it would have cost you $54 in gas. With gas prices now at $3.60 it will cost you $65. So the difference is only $11 one way which really is not bad. All things in perspective as Mark likes to say!...
