MT. VERNON, Ill., March 19, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — JTLL Enterprises announced this week the launch of HitchHauling.com – a new website that connects hitchers and haulers so they can save money on gas. The recent surge in gasoline prices is once again putting a squeeze on Americans. In fact, gasoline prices are up almost 17 percent, or 54 cents, this year through March 14, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA).
Additionally, AAA reported that the national average retail price of unleaded regular gasoline climbed to .82 a gallon on March 14, 2012; that’s 7.5 percent higher than a year ago.
HitchHauling.com offers some relief to people who are seeking ways to save money on gas.
“People can pay for their gas in many ways,” says John Smith, founder Hitch Hauling. “For example, let’s say a family is going on vacation. Check the site to see if someone needs something hauled to that destination – it can be something as small as a golf club, or larger like a motorcycle. Of course, the size of the vehicle will determine what cargo can be hauled.”
So, how does it work? First, it’s free to become a member. Then, if a hitcher and hauler want to connect, it’s only to get the contact information and the rest of the arrangements are between the hitcher and hauler.
“Recently, someone was hauling a three-wheeler to a destination and there was plenty of room on the trailer for another item,” says Smith. “This would have been an ideal opportunity to connect with a hitcher.”
HitchHauling.com proves to be less costly than standard shipping. And, since the hauler is already making the trip, it’s efficient, eco-friendly and typically saves times. It’s a win-win situation. The hitcher gets a better deal and the hauler offsets their cost of gas.
The website is easy to use. There is a section for haulers to post their routes, destinations and estimated time of arrival. And hitchers post their needs in the cargo section.
So, whether commuting to work daily or going on a cross-country vacation, people may as well consider hauling something and putting some extra cash in their pocket at the same time. In today’s economy – every little drop counts.
