With the temperatures turning up over 100 degrees, summer is officially here for Arizonans.

There’s no better time to get out on the open road and see what the beautiful state of Arizona has to offer.

However, there could be something that prevents people from getting out and traveling: rising gas prices.

Gas prices have climbed significantly in the past year and have affected people’s everyday lives. The average cost of a gallon of gas in Arizona is $5.20.

Is the cost of gas putting a cloud over your summer vacation plans?

Let Sanderson Ford help with their wide-range selection of electric vehicles to eliminate your gas expenses.

Travel the open road in the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the iconic sports car blended with modern electronic technology.

The Mach-E has a travel range of 230 miles after charge but still performs like a classic Mustang GT, going 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

Need something more spacious for the whole family? Look no further than the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, the all-electric version of Ford’s staple truck.

The Ford Lightning could be perfect for summer road trips with its larger charge, having an estimating 320 miles.

Those aren’t the only options of electric vehicles to cut gas costs. Sanderson Ford has just the right vehicle for you.

Getting the right vehicle is ever important this summer, so you can see all the great sights and cities Arizona has to offer.

Here’s just a few places Arizonans ought to get out and visit this summer:


Get away from the blistering Valley heat and head north to red-rock country in beautiful Sedona.

Sedona features a handful of adventures, from four-wheel drive tours in the mountains to a number of scenic hiking spots.

The Devils Bridge is a famous spot in Sedona that needs to be seen with your own eyes.

There’s also a handful of shopping options in Sedona, with a number of shops along Route 89.


Continue traveling north to see all that historic Flagstaff has to offer.

The home to Northern Arizona University is surrounded by mountains to hike and covered with forest.

The Sunset Crater Volcano is a sight for families to see, as the crater that extends over 8,000 feet includes a mile-long walking trail.

Heritage Square and Downtown Flagstaff feature a handful of local breweries and food to go with live music performances.

Grand Canyon

And last but certainly not least, keep traveling north to see the breathtaking Grand Canyon.

Visit the national park that stretches over 270 miles and features lodging options on either the North or South Rim of the canyon.

The Grand Canyon offers a number of tours, including hiking, and via bus and helicopter.

The sights of the Grand Canyon are unmatched. Pictures just don’t do it justice.
