Nextag Helps You Beat the Heat with the Coolest Summer Deals
San Mateo, CA, June 24, 2008 - With gas prices skyrocketing with no end in sight, now's definitely not the time to be driving from store to store, looking for the best deals. So what's a bargain hunter to do? Well, more and more people are turning to online shopping to combat rising gas prices. In fact, one third of U.S. adults said they are more likely to do their shopping on the Internet instead of in brick-and-mortar stores due to the growing cost of gas, according to an iCongo survey conducted by Harris Interactive. With the heat and gas prices continuing to rise this summer, there's never been a better time to take your comparison shopping off the road and online. And Nextag.com, recently named one of the "50 Best Websites 2008" by TIME magazine, is the perfect place to start.
Here is Nextag's guide to help you find everything you need to make the best of your summer.
