Katy, TX (PRWEB) July 7, 2008
The cost of buying bedroom furniture locally is higher than ever when you add gas costs and delivery charges. Home and Bedroom Furniture has the ideal solution with it's full line of Discount Bedroom Furniture, from quality, well priced manufacturers such as Prepac Furniture and Fashion Bed Group. With more Americans staying home instead of going out, the desire for home comfort is higher than ever. Home and Bedroom wants to solve the dilemma of how to achieve that comfort without gunning up the automobile engine.
As average gas prices across the nation continue to top $4.11 per gallon, Americans collectively cried foul. First, they got mad; then they decided to get even. In fact, the Department of Transportation's March figures show that recently we've had the steepest decrease in driving ever recorded. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "21 percent of the population live in rural areas in this country and 39.5 percent of the total vehicle miles traveled are on rural roads." That means Americans who live outside a metropolitan region have to do some serious traveling, especially when they want to secure the best prices on major purchases. And with gas prices skyrocketing, that can add a large extra charge to any shopping trip.
The Federal Energy Department predicts that prices for a gallon of gasoline may top $5.00 a gallon this summer. In response to such soaring increases, the American Automobile Association reported in May that "74 percent of Americans said they will change their driving habits and drive less." It's no wonder then that high gas prices are driving U.S. consumers to find deals on the Internet.
When it comes to online furniture deals, Home and Bedroom Furniture is poised to beat the oil companies at their own game. A leading site for quality furniture that is well priced, Home and Bedroom delivers a wide selection of metal beds, platform beds and full lines of discount bedroom furniture right to a homeowner's doorsteps, all with free shipping. That means consumers can enjoy the same price perks they'd find locally, with a much wider selection and without spending a dime on gas. For instance, if a shopper had to drive one hour to a a local furniture showroom, for a round trip of two hours, he would probably still have to pay for delivery of his furniture. Home and Bedroom not only eliminates that gas-guzzling commute but also saves on shipping charges by offering free shipping on all items. In the end, those perks could easily add up to hundreds of dollars in savings.
