Looks like vacationing Texans like to stay in Texas, at least during this economic uncertainty. According the AAA, Texans are more likely to travel this summer, but will vacation in state for the summer of 2010. Of the many really hot spots within the Lone Star State to vacation – Austin seems to be the second most popular destination, while San Antonio took the number 1 position.
“Travelers who booked trips for this summer have tended to focus more on getting the most value for their money,” said Rhonda Wilson, AAA Texas vice president and general manager. “However, right now we are seeing people who are more willing to come in and book more expensive ‘dream trips’ for the future beyond this summer, which is a signal that they are feeling more optimistic about their economic situations.”
Also from AAA, Texas gas prices are down. The statewide average price hit $2.67 per gallon, down 2 cents from one week ago. Austin motorists continued to pay less than average, $2.65.
