July 4th is Great for the Aftermarket

I’m doing my part for the aftermarket industry this coming weekend.

Yup, I’ll be one of the 35.5 million people that AAA predicts will travel by automobile over the July 4th holiday – a million more than last year. Every little bit helps, right?

You know my disdain for the mindless media hype whenever  gas prices rise a few pennies (my last blog). But I am happy to see gas prices about 18 cents cheaper than the same time last year. Again, every little bit helps.

It makes me proud to see that 84 percent of people traveling over this coming weekend choose to travel by car. It reinforces the incredibly important role our aftermarket industry plays in ensuring the freedom of mobility. The core value of our industry is to provide the products and services necessary to make sure vehicles are safe, dependable, efficient and environmentally friendly.

We keep America on the road over Independence Day weekend and every weekend. It’s a big job and we do it well.

Have a safe and fun July 4th holiday.
