According to a report by the Detroit News many believe that high gas prices will not be a deciding factor when it comes to traveling over Memorial Day Weekend. Many determine this weekend as the start of the summer season and folks have been itching to hit the road for a change of scenery. Gas prices that are averaging in the neighborhood of $2.80 per gallon apparently will not stop the majority of travelers. About the only area that seems to be taking a noticeable hit is the boating community. Marinas across the state are seeing a definite drop in the number of people putting in their boats compared to this time in years past. I guess if you want to own a boat, make it a sailboat so gas prices won't affect whether or not you hit the big blue.
Bed & Breakfasts, hotels, and resorts across the state are not taking a chance on high gas prices keeping visitors away. Many are offering cheaper rate packages, free gas cards with multiple night stays, and other assorted extras.
What do you think? Will gas prices keep you from traveling?
