Picture this: you are moving from Boston to Dallas. You rent a Budget truck. You have to fill it up before your trip. It is a 35 gallon tank. You spend $130 on your first tank of gas. 280 miles down the road, you have to stop and fill up again. Repeat every 280 miles. That is about 7 stops on your 1768 mile route! That is almost $1000 in gasoline!
