NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY - June 20

NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY

Annually celebrated on June 20, it is National Dump the Pump Day.  2013 is it’s 8th year celebration and again, National Dump the Pump encourages people to ride public transportation, instead of driving, and save money today.

When gas prices are high and the economy is tight,  riding public transportation is a good alternative and an economical way to save money.   Many Americans use local public transportation to commute to and from work, school, shopping, errands, family visits and etc.   This can save you money on fuel along with wear and tear on your car and can also possibly reduce your commute time and help in reducing road congestion.
