With 3 boys all in car seats, and one more due any day… it’s difficult to travel in anything other than a van or an SUV. Especially since we want to have more children.

Right now we own a van. It gets us around. The kids have plenty of room. And there’s definitely room for more babies (and kids). All things that I love about our van.

But… filling it up costs over $65.00. And we fill it at least twice a week.

My husband would like to get something that is more economically sound… but I’m not sold on the idea.

I came across this great article on CNN.comSUV owners keep on truckin’ despite gas prices – that truly outlined many of my own points.
