Next Thursday marks the eight annual Dump the Pump Day, a celebration supported by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). While the immediate goal of the day is to encourage people to ride public transportation instead of driving, the ultimate goal is to reduce carbon emissions and help people save money.
According to the APTA, “In these tough economic times with high gas prices, everyone is looking for a way to save money. National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation (instead of driving) and save money.”
For many people, public transportation still is not an option, so Rothrock Motors would like to help push the ultimate goal of helping the environment by rewarding those that drive eco-friendly cars. As a sign of appreciation, anyone who drives a hybrid or electric vehicle will receive a free car wash on Thursday, June 22.
Rothrock Motors is proud to offer many electric and hybrid vehicles including the Nissan LEAF electric vehicle, Nissan Pathfinder hybrid, and Nissan Altima hybrid. To learn more about these cars and Dump the Pump Day, contact us at (866) 219-2349.
