Car rentals up for holiday travel

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the nation’s largest rental car company, said it is experiencing a 20 percent increase over last year in advance reservations for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The company attributes the increase to concern over high gas prices leading people to leave their family cars at home and rent a more fuel-efficient vehicle for holiday travel.
Enterprise rents hybrids, flexible-fuel vehicles that run on E85, along with vehicles with highway fuel efficiency ratings of 28 miles per gallon or more.
