As we approach the end of the global pandemic, we continue to hear of shortages in many industries.

The car rental business reports that there are fewer and fewer vehicles out there to rent, so some are now renting their OWN vehicles to those in need.

As a matter of fact, there is a new app that you can download onto your phone and it allows you to find personal vehicles up for rent.

The app is called "Turo" and it helps you locate people in your area that are willing to rent their car to you while in the city. One listener called the radio station and said this app came in very handy while out of town.


And as you may expect, as more and more people find out about this app, the requests for vehicles have sky-rocketed and many are now reporting that their vehicle(s) stays booked by those looking for transportation.

The rental car shortage is such a serious issue in some parts of the country some are resorting to renting moving trucks and vehicles to get around.

Now, with the Turo app, you have options. And please, when and if you do rent a vehicle, don't be this guy!


LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
