Simple Savings: Just Buy the Gas
After being in a car for a long time when you travel, it is so tempting to get out and buy drinks and snacks at the place where you are filling up for gas. When you stop, just buy gas and nothing else. For the same amount of money you would have spent on overpriced snacks, you could easily buy a lot more food at the grocery store. You could also save the money you would have spent and buy other food that is a little healthier like Subway or Taco Bell. The healthiest and least expensive thing to do would be to have snacks and food prepared ahead of the trip and bring them with you. Remember to bring a cooler if necessary.
