It’s no secret that people have tightened their budgets and thus a ripple has coursed through every corner of our economy. I had to mention, as the PD sends me to Spring Training this week, the rental car company I signed up with is using creative ways in lessening their economic impact and passing it on to the consumer.

For the first time ever, my rental car cost more than my plane ticket.

It’s a mid-size too. I don’t fit in to the compact models.
