The Better Business Bureau has been hearing lots of complaints from around the country about various fun runs that have been cancelled with short notice, often with no refunds.

BBB Warns: Don’t Be Fooled by Fuel Additives Promising Big Gas Savings

With gas prices above $3.00 per gallon, summer travel can come with a hefty price tag. When gas prices climb, products that claim to improve fuel efficiency might be appealing. But it's a smart idea to be skeptical of any gas-saving claims for automotive devices or oil and gas additives.
