Roughly 38 million Americans are trekking more than 50 miles away from home this Memorial day weekend. Despite continually rising gas prices, it's an increase of about 2 percent over last year. A bit surprising given that gas is averaging around $3 and a quarter throughout the country (a 36 cent increase over last month). Hotel rates are also up over 10 percent but it hasn't kept Americans from traveling. An AP-Ispos poll showed that Americans considered the rising gas prices a "serious hardship" but they're cutting back on other things to compensate (food?). Good luck on the roads this weekend.
