PEORIA, Ill. -- Gasoline prices tend to go higher in the summer months and now may be the time you consider making a change.

Thursday is National Dump the Pump Day.

To mark the day and to get you to consider taking the bus, CityLink is handing out coupons for $1.00 off at local attractions along its routes.

According to the American Public Transportation Association, if a two person household can downsize to one car they could save an average of $9,700 a year.

The discount coupons will be handed out at the Citylink Transit Center on SW Adams Street for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The coupons are only good on Thursday.
