If you’ve had to fill up your gas tank lately, you know that getting the gas gauge off empty can take a small fortune. The vans used by vanlifers use tons of fuel, especially since most don’t stay in one place for too long. Many of these nomads hit the road wanting a budget-friendly way to travel compared to the expense of a house or apartment. That may have been true when they started, and gas averaged $2.17 per gallon in 2020. But that’s not the case in 2022, when AAA reports the national average is hovering around $5 per gallon.

Why Are Gas Prices so High?

Anytime gas prices skyrocket, everybody starts pointing fingers. We typically hear that it’s the greedy oil companies or whoever is occupying the White House at the time. Many also blame foreign leaders for causing the issue.

Will Gas Prices Come Back Down?

What goes up must come down eventually. Right? Well, that’s the hope anyway. We don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel yet, but we’re hopeful that prices will drop soon. President Joe Biden has called on Congress to pause taxes on fuel to help ease the pain many Americans face. We have also heard the same regarding state gasoline tax.
