there are two of us and we are planning a world trip and are wanting to travel from New York to LA and need a cheap car hire company that will allow us to do this as cheap as possible. we don't mind camping so a car would be fine. oh n does anyone know how long it will take?

You might want to consider renting an RV. It will save you tons of money on hotel costs.
Here's a site that can help you estimate fuel costs for your trip: http://www.fuelcostcalculator.com/
I've heard this company was a good place to rent an RV from:
http://www.cruiseamerica.com/destination...
There's a number you can call (it's on the left side of the page in small lettering) for one-way rentals.

It's hard to say how long it will take. It depends on how often you stop, places you visit, how fast you drive, etc...
If you plan on making stops at lots of places for activities, sight seeing, etc, it might take you anywhere from 1.5 weeks to 1 month or more.
I would map out destinations you want to visit, and different cities that you want to stop in, and plan at least 1 day at the least for every stop/city just to allow ample time.
You can use mapquest to see estimated travel times.

If you take the shortest route from NY to LA, you're going to see a lot of nothing in between. You'll need to do some out-of-the-way driving to get to all the major cities, and attractions.

Make sure to visit places like The Grand Canyon, or YellowStone National Park!
Have fun!

A one way car rental, cross country, is going to cost a fortune but Enterprise might be your best price.
