Average gas prices in Richmond rose six cents a gallon last week, while during that same time the national gas prices rose 4.5 cents per gallon on average. Carpooling is a great option for those of you who live in apartments in Glen Allen and are commuting to Richmond each day. Get some friends or co-workers together and share the ride and the expenses.
With more people traveling in the same car, carpooling reduces each person's travel costs like fuel and tolls. But there is more to carpooling than just cutting down on gas prices. Carpooling is a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel, sharing the car reduces carbon emissions, traffic congestion on the roads, and the need for parking spaces. Carpooling is encouraged, especially during times of high pollution periods and high fuel prices.
