As you’ve probably noticed, gas prices are currently lower than they’ve been in years! The national average for a gallon of gas is $2.05, as of January 21, 2015. Prices are more than a dollar less than they were a year ago.

The city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee is enjoying particularly cheap gas prices, at only $1.85 per gallon. Low fuel costs make now the perfect time to take a road trip to the Great Smoky Mountains area for an affordable Gatlinburg cabin vacation!

Turn Your Savings into Vacation Fun

Gatlinburg is just a day’s drive from over 2/3rds of the nation’s population! Rather than spending hundreds of dollars on expensive plane tickets, most Americans can just hop in their car and visit the Smokies in no time.

With the price of gas so low, visitors to Gatlinburg will have a lot more money to spend on their vacation. How will you use your savings?

Stay in the Gatlinburg Cabin of Your Dreams
