With summer approaching, many drivers are planning to drive to their destinations this year while some of them are planning to stay home probably due high gas prices and the economy. Just yesterday, a poll was conducted on the upcoming driving season, and won’t believe the results!
The number of vacationing Americans will be down this summer, according to a new AP-Gfk Poll, and a third of Americans surveyed said they have already canceled at least one trip this year because of financial concerns.
Overall, the survey found only 42 percent of Americans plan a leisure trip this summer, down from the 49 percent who said they planned to take a summer trip in an AP-Ipsos poll conducted in May 2005.
Despite the analysis, many Americans are taking a chance of driving around to their destinations for the summer. As for me, I’m taking it easy this summer. And as for driving, we’re also taking it easy on that too because we always shop every weekend rain or shine.
