I've got just the car for you

Stephen Baker

Maybe I'm just too lucky. I'm flying to Austin tomorrow, and when it comes to renting a car in the heart of Texas, they have great deals on SUVs! I can gun down Sixth Street in a muscular Expedition for a lower day-rate than a Chevy Cavalier or even a knee-scrunching Geo.

Pricy gas is turning the rental market upside down. And I'll bet the used-car market is in convulsions too. Could resale value of our sensible'94 Altima be climbing? Should we make a contrarian bet and trade it in for a Hummer? The head spins.

And I defy you to find an airport with easier access from the gate to the rental car area than ABIA. Have fun while you're here!
