Gas prices have little effect on travel
by UPI

LOS ANGELES - Americans plan to travel this summer despite high gasoline prices, a survey by the Travel Industry Association found.

The organization and

Travel Industry Association and the marketing firm Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell surveyed 1,546 "leisure travelers" to examine the impact of rising gasoline prices on their travel intentions, the TIA said in a release.

The survey found that most Americans said they are likely to stick with their travel plans -- as long as gas prices do not rise above $3.50 per gallon.

"The good news is that we expect more travel this summer," said TIA President and Chief Executive Officer Roger J. Dow. "But if prices rise above $3.50 per gallon, it appears that many Americans may change their travel plans."
