(POLL) Nearly 40% say gas prices have changed their vacation plans

With regular gasoline selling for nearly $3.50 a gallon, more than a third say fuel prices have altered their plans for a summer vacation.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 38% of adults say the price of gasoline has affected their vacation plans for this summer.

Fifty-four percent (54%) say gas prices haven’t changed their summer vacation plans.

In June 2022, when gasoline reached a national average of $4.98 per gallon, 57% said their vacation plans had been affected by fuel prices.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline, which was $2.02 in November 2020, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, is now $3.43. 

Sixty-one percent (61%) say that, over the past six months, the price of gasoline in their area has gone up, while 10% say the price has gone down, and 24% say the gasoline price in their area has stayed about the same.

  1. The exhorbant gas prices back in 2022 halted my annual RV trip around the US. In 2023 I decided to pay the price, decided to travel again. This year again I am on the road but limiting travel as both overall inflation and gas prices are hitting the budget hard.
