Breaking Down The Great American “Road Trip”

We’re in the thick of summer, so a gas company recently commissioned a study to determine what a “typical” road trip looks like (for one, we’ll paying a LOT on gas, thank you very much). After consulting 2,000 people . . .

  • The typical road trip lasts just under four hours . . .
  • Covers 150 miles . . .
  • Includes 4 people . . .
  • Who play 2 travel games . . .
  • On average, you’ll hear 4 cries of “Are we there yet?”
  • Families have on average 2 arguments per road trip.
  • Involve things like: Windows being open or closed, who sits where, and who ate the snacks.
  • A total of 6 snacks are consumed . . .
  • With the most popular being sandwiches, chips, and sweet stuff.
  • 41% love listening to the radio . . .
  • A typical road trip has about 40 songs.
  • Pit stops last roughly 17 minutes  . . .
  • And we usually go on 8 road trips like these per year.
