$CAR I'm a member of Avis Presidents Club. Just called them to talk about renting a car this weekend. After a little chit chat, I asked if people were renting cars and the women on the other line said, "yes, we're surprisingly very busy". I asked is that true throughout the US, she said "definitely". We'll see but, Im getting the feeling that this holiday weekend is the pivotal start to the uptick in the rental market.
