How will rising gas prices affect the cost of transportation where you live?
We’ve launched a new tool on our Abogo® website that shows how rising gas prices could affect household transportation costs at a given location. Users can type in an address to see average transportation costs for a neighborhood and then select a gas price to calculate how it would affect transportation costs at that location. Auto-dependent locations see their transportation costs increase dramatically as prices move up along the slider, but transit-rich locations have more modest increases.
Want advice on lower transportation costs? Sign up for I-GO Car Sharing or another car sharing organization where you live. I-GO members save $5,000/year on average compared to owning a car. Take transit when possible and make sure your boss is enrolled in pre-tax transit benefits that can save you and your employer money. Abogo has additional resources on how to lower transportation costs.
