Gas Prices May Hinder Travel In Idaho For Memorial Day
Gas prices may keep Idahoans from heading out Memorial Day weekend. Triple-A of Idaho says consumer apprehension and significantly higher fuel prices may limit travel growth. Triple-A expects 34.8 million Americans will go 50 miles or more during the holiday. They expect that to be a modest increase by only 1.2 percent. That's about 500,000 travelers. That's only a slight improvement from last year's travel numbers. Idaho's average price for a gallon of gas is $3.80, up $.03 from April 1st.
