My uncle died this week in Bullhead City, AZ I told my parents I just can't go...I don't want to pay for a hotel room, meals, gas etc.

Is there any way you could make the trip for free or cheap?...

Assuming he wasn't particularly close to his uncle, I wouldn't encourage the trip. If it's important enough to his parents that he attend, they'll volunteer to cover his expenses. Otherwise, send Auntie a thoughtfully worded condolence note, done.
