High Gas Prices Hold Back Summer Vacation Plans

Above, today's gasoline prices locally.

It looks like many others besides me are making alternate plans for summer vacationing.

I was originally planning to head up to eastern Wyoming and western South Dakota this summer, but the rise in gas prices have forced me to change plans and go to places nearby instead.

From what I am reading, others are doing the same.

The National Interest reported:

Summer vacation season still may be weeks away, but some experts are already contending that it will be an expensive one for American motorists, along with those wishing to fly.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline rose slightly on Friday to $4.15, according to data from AAA, and that upward trend is expected to continue in the weeks ahead. As reported by Fox Business, the head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, Patrick De Haan, has issued an outlook of what gas prices might look like over the summer months—and it doesn’t look pretty.

According to his estimates, the national average price for a gallon of gas will likely hover between $4.18 and $4.25. More specifically, in a recent tweet, he stood by projections that he made last month—$4.21 for June, $4.18 for July, and $4.23 for August. For the entire year, the average gas price comes out to $3.99.

My RV has a 55 gallon gas tank. To fill that up at the current Flying J price in Jamestown, New Mexico of $4.359 would cost around $239.75.

No, thank you!
