Travel Q&A: Renting a car can cause sticker shock

Q: Has anybody tried to rent a car lately? We are attending a family reunion in Minnesota in September, so I thought I’d jump online and lock in a great rate with an advance booking. But holy smokes — the rates are semi-astronomical. Do car rentals ever hit a sweet spot, like how airline tickets are allegedly at their best price 54 days before travel? Any suggestions on when to buy?
