6 ways to save on food costs during road trips with family

Friends planning road trips.

If you’ve been considering taking road trips with the kids, now might be a great time to put it into gear.

In April 2016, American drivers had saved nearly $12 billion on gas during the first months of the year compared to what they spent on fuel during the same time period in 2015, according to a recent AAA survey.
