Are gas prices, rising costs, and travel concerns keeping you from planning a vacation? Then a staycation is your perfect solution this summer. Check out these tips from Buckle to enjoy an adventure close to home while helping the destinations, restaurants, and gig workers in your local community thrive.
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As the final weeks of summer approach, many Americans remain uncertain about whether to plan travel. Concerns including many flights being cancelled, the high cost of gas and rising inflation putting pressure on their budgets, and potentially getting sick far from home are all considerations driving these decisions.
A recent study by personal finance site Bankrate found that nearly seven in ten American adults (or 70%) who say they will vacation this summer anticipate making changes to their plans because of the high level of inflation, with 25% traveling shorter distances, and 23% planning less-expensive activities. Among people planning to vacation, a staycation was the second most popular option behind a beach trip.
