AAA's Fuel Gauge Report shows that the average national price of gasoline spiked to $3.92 per gallon in April 2012. The Los Angeles Times states that although there have been temporary price decreases recently, history suggests fuel costs will rise again.
As summer approaches, people hit the highway for vacations, students relocate from college and some workers find themselves moving out of state. Increased gas prices will continue to be a rub for Americans for some time.
More than ever, it makes sense to hire professionals for long distance moving needs. Container-based moving options are great for college graduates trading dorms for apartments, or for people relocating from one urban neighborhood to another.

Some companies offer online estimates, so there is greater transparency when it comes to pricing.
Considering gas prices, it is likely that hiring professional relocators is the most cost-effective moving option.
