APTA : "Washington, D.C. – The national average gas price fell slightly as Americans prepare to give thanks with family and friends. Even with the dip in gas prices, there is still a great opportunity to save using public transportation instead of driving this holiday season. This year you can let public transportation relieve you from the stress of driving as you make preparations for Thanksgiving and your retail vists for Black Friday sales.
The annual savings is $9,641 for a person who switches his or her daily commute by car to taking public transportation, according to the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) November Transit Savings Report. Individuals who ride public transportation instead of driving can save, on average, more than $803 per month. "
