The summer might be over, but most of us are still reeling from all of the expenses that we made during what is a favorite time of the year for most people. The vast majority of young and old adults look forward to the summer season all year for a chance to take a vacation, go on a fun roadtrip, visit friends, or just hit up the park or the beach a few times. But the thing about that is – everyone wants to do the same things, and this takes a toll on both the economic infrastructure of towns and cities and also the environment. For instance, gas and fuel prices go up because there are so many more cars on the road, polution and car accidents increase as well because of those same cars on the road, agriculture and crops are damaged by naturally rough weather as well as the increased fumes in the air, and the list goes on. This infographic, Summer Effects on Infrastructure, breaks down that list of extra costs and damages a city goes through simply due to the summer months. Maybe this will help convince you to stay home more next summer!
