Lower gas prices make family trips easier

Have your parents ever taken you on long trips? If they haven’t, I think I know why: maybe because of the gas prices they have to pay to go places in their car.

I know I’m just a kid, but sometimes I pay good attention to certain things, too. Now that the gas prices are so much lower than last year, your parents can take you to awesome places. Even I know that because now my dad is taking me to Florida! He said we might even go on a pirate ship. My dad is paying for all of the things I do on the trip from the leftovers from not spending it on gas. Low gas prices help everyone. It gives families at the end of the week more money to spend on food and things to keep yourself healthy.
