Now that Summer is officially here, families across the state of Louisiana are making plans to take road trips and vacations while their kids are out of school.

Depending on how far you plan on traveling, you may decide to pack up the car and go instead of booking a flight. When it's all said and done, the cost of filling up a vehicle multiple times on a road trip could run you pretty close to the cost of flying to your destination.

The fluctuating costs at the pump can significantly impact household budgets, transportation expenses, and overall economic stability. The good news is that compared to the rest of the nation, Louisiana has the second lowest gas prices after Mississippi.

What if we told you there was actually a 'good' day to fill up your car?
