NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY – Third Thursday in June
NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY
On the third Thursday in June, National Dump the Pump encourages people to ride public transportation instead of driving and save money.
When gas prices are high and the economy is tight, riding public transportation is a good alternative and an economical way to save money. Many Americans use local public transportation to commute to and from work, school, for shopping and errands, and even to make family visits. This can save you money on fuel along with wear and tear on your car. It can also possibly reduce your commute time and help reduce road congestion.
