Express Car Rental

Project Description:
Jason Easton is a member of the support/decision team for the San Diego branch of Express Car Rental.  He created a worksheet to keep track of weekly rentals in an attempt to identify trends in choices of rental vehicles, length of rental, and payment method.  This spreadsheet is designed only for Jason and his supervisor to try and find weekly trends and possibly use this information when marketing and forecasting the type of cars needed on site. The data for the dates of rental, daily rates, payment method, and gas option have already been entered.
