As airfares rise, planners are once again favoring drive-in markets for meetings. But with price of gas at an all-time high, how cost efficient is driving vs. flying? AAA’s Fuel Cost Calculator takes into consideration the make, model and manufacturer of each traveler’s car to determine the cost of one-way and round-trip travel. The Alabama’s Gulf Coast CVB has an online fuel calculator that calculates the cost of driving to Gulf Shores or Orange Beach.
