Idahoans Expected To Travel During Memorial Day Weekend Depsite High Gas Prices

The travel organization AAA predicts gas prices won’t stop you from traveling 50 miles or more away home for the the Memorial Day holiday weekend. the group’s research indicates that even those folks traveling will try to curb some costs — not in gas, but in the money they spend when they get where they’re going. Last year, AAA guessed a modest amount of holiday weekend travelers, but the country saw a 14 percent jump from the year before. The predictions, the group says, are based on economic forecasting and research by Boston’s IHS Global Insight, which says lower unemployment and higher disposable income still won’t be enough erase much of the uncertainty about gas prices. Some highlights of a survey of travelers: — 6 of 10 drivers said gas prices weren’t affecting their plans. — 70 percent of the other 40 percent said they would economize in other areas and still travel. As for yesterday afternoon, the average price for a gallon of unleaded gas in Idaho was 3.73. Up almost 70 center from this time last year, but the current national average of  3.87.
