Rising Gas Prices Expected To Impact Summer Vacations

Do rising gas prices have you rethinking your summer vacation plans?

According to a new survey from the U.S. Travel Association reported in USA Today, 54 percent of travelers who have planned to drive for their summer vacation say rising prices at the pump will have an impact.

Beach goers like Anne Marie Wolfe who drove to Atlantic Beach from Alabama say gas is making her think twice about future trips. "With no jobs and everything and gas is going up, it's kind of hard to travel and take trips especially with gas being so high."

Leisure travelers were also more likely to cancel their trips because of higher gas prices. 44 percent said they will take fewer trips this summer.
