Woodward, Okla. —
RENTAL CARS STILL HEADING UP
But as gas prices drop, AAA said rental car rates are expected to jump this holiday.
"The average rate is pegged at $47 per day this Thanksgiving holiday, compared to $37 last year," Mai said. "We really don't know why the rise."
The only thing the experts can attribute it to is the continually-volatile market for car rentals.
"The rates that are paid can vary by the time of day and even the day of the week when reservations are made," he said.
