I saw this article on the USA Today website where Hertz is planning to purchase Dollar /Thrifty if approved by the Federal Trade Commission.   While Hertz is my preferred car rental company I am a little disappointed  by the news.  I have found in quite a few markets that Hertz is a bit higher than the competition and I usually then go to Thrifty which usually has much lower rental prices and a free frequent customer program (Blue Chip) which is similar to the benefits of Hertz's Gold Member program.  I'm afraid that if Thrifty is purchased by Hertz then their rates may increase.

Hertz buying Dollar Thrifty for about $2.3 billion –
