Millions of Americans will take a family road trip this summer, but with the high cost of today�s gas, these summer vacations will not be cheap. As John Stossel reports, some companies claim that they have formulated products that will help save money on gas. Are their claims true? Stossel talks to the experts about the secrets of getting more mileage for your money, on �20/20,� FRIDAY, JULY 14 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
And: The breast feeding debate continues, only now it is not whether mothers should breast feed their babies � scientists, doctors and even the baby formula industry all agree that breast milk is the best. The debate that rages now is over the government�s recent two million dollar advertising campaign. The ad did not spotlight the health benefits, rather it focused on the risks of not breast feeding. Elizabeth Vargas reports that this touched a nerve among women who tried and could not produce enough milk, or decided to formula feed for other reasons. These women feel the ads went too far and were unfair. Vargas talks to four women with strong feelings about the topic, including a lactation consultant who defends the ad.

Plus: This week was the ultimate payday for Kyle MacDonald, a 26-year-old dreamer who wondered if, starting with one red paperclip, it would be possible to make enough trades to eventually get a house. And so began an inventive journey inspired by a childhood barter game. From his computer in Montreal, Canada, MacDonald traded with people from across Canada and the U.S., including a few celebrities. �Wow, it would be cool, instead of getting the job to buy the house, if I just played bigger and better till I actually traded up to the house. And that�s when I looked down at my desk and saw one red paperclip, and said, �I�ll start with that,�� MacDonald tells �20/20.� Don Dahler reports.
