Fly-Or-Drive-Calculator: Calculate Whether It Is Cheaper to Fly or Drive

Umar 31-05-2011

It used to be reasonable to assume that driving to a particular city was cheaper than flying there. But that assumption is no longer usually true because of rising fuel costs, cheap flights, and other factors. Here to help you find out whether driving or flying will be cheaper for a particular trip is a web service called the “Fly or Drive” calculator by BeFrugal.

    Ah, yes, just brilliant: "This service only supports locations within the continental United States. Your location Houston, TX, USA does not appear to be in the continental United States." [Added bonus: we will now crash your browser.]

    Fantastic! Amazing! Incredible!
