when i do the "car rental nyc" organic search i get the "Past 2 Months" option...
Same here. I can't tell from the screen shot what those serp titles link to, but they are the same page titles as are displayed in the organic results I'm getting, and those do link to the websites of the companies returned.
It looks to me as if Google has combined the regular serps with the 7-pack/10-pack results, adding extra info to give you more choices of where to navigate to, but not removing the option of going to the sites of those businesses. This doesn't jibe with the blog post title, so I'm confused by what they're observing.
