Customers enter promo code "GAS" at checkout to receive $10 off their Las Vegas hotel booking of $250 or more. The $50 gas card can be picked up at one of the many VEGAS.com concierge locations at Las Vegas hotels on the Strip.

"Summer is all about hopping in the car and taking off for a few days," said Howard Lefkowitz, CEO of VEGAS.com. "We're helping people save on their hotel room, and then helping out with the cost of their drive home."
According to a survey by Rand McNally, 66 percent of Americans who plan to take a road trip this summer say that rising gas prices have prompted them to change their plans. Almost three in five (57 percent) said they expect to cut back on the number of days and/or distance driven.
