AAA says 27% of Travelers Book Trips 1-2 Years in Advance

 

AAA offers Travel Saving Tips

AAATampa, FL – Planning the perfect trip could take days, weeks or even months, but a recent AAA study shows that nearly two-thirds (64%) of travelers are booking 7 months to 2 years in advance.

“The fact that travelers are booking so far in advance tells us that travelers are taking more expensive trips, and they want enough time to adequately plan them,” said Vicky Evans, Director of Field Travel Support, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Despite improvements in the economy and low gas prices, saving money remains a top priority for many families. Travelers can get much more for their money by booking in advance. In fact, anyone who books their travel plans with AAA by June 20 can receive up to $500.00 in savings or on-board credit for a cruise or tour.”

AAA says Gas Prices maybe reaching their Peak

 

Motorists could find the cheapest summer gas prices in ten years

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices could finally be reaching their peak as the rate of increase at the pump is beginning to stall. Since last Sunday, the average price for gasoline rose 5 cents in Georgia and 1-cent in Tennessee, but declined 1-cent in Florida.

“Gas prices usually peak by May, but have been rising on the back of crude oil prices and increasing demand,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The price of crude oil has found a new normal around $60.00 a barrel, and it’s likely that gas prices will decline in June. This would be the first time that gas prices peaked after the month of May since 2010.”
