It's how much of that depends on gas prices is that a direct correlation when we were on our way to 150 bucks a barrel for oil last year we got there in the summer.
-- people less confident.
Sharon lower gas prices certainly helped as do lower airfares -- hotel rates lower prices on Chris says.
All of encourages people to cap their take advantage of -- and take a summer vacation you know we can afford to 39 a lot better than getting up by four dollars.
A gallon or something like that on the gas price its chairman airfare is fantastic aircraft -- -- at 17% from last year international fares are down to.
So you know it's a good time to take a -- that sometimes it makes more sense probably in that -- -- people you have with you got fly.
That's true that's channels depending on the distance they're kind -- let's talk about some options that people have out there right in there and you know you have a three affordable vacations that we can talk about -- -- the -- the list is kind of interesting because one of them.
Universal Studios was first on the list what that total Orlando they have a great deal this summer where.
Parents -- warning vacation and they can't stay and play for -- at the kids get unlimited.
-- -- -- right where -- vacation and had a that they exceeding.
The price -- that's about 34 dollars per night.
Per person for forging a check you want to upgrade -- -- -- that.
You can stay at an on -- universal property and -- universal express -- the picture right in front of the line I mean that's surprisingly -- I mean I know that the economy's -- and -- they're giving great -- -- that is really a -- deal for some in the universal right is 500 -- the family of 4530 psychology and I -- to do it when you break it down -- person you really get its -- absolutely -- you wanna look at -- don't just look at the -- and I don't just -- -- costs and -- look at the total price verification.
Before making decisions on what you can then number two -- the -- I always associate would be pretty.
Pricey trip going to Alaska on -- -- people that have done -- say it's great.
But this is on the affordable this this year.
It is Chris pricing.

From where it was last year about how Alaska cruises down as much as 40%.
From last year now keep in mind you are gonna have to keep your -- to -- Alaska takers yet but.
Chris on carnival spirit this summer several Chris is at least pretty much average every few weeks -- costs about 47 dollars per person.
Her -- now that's from inside cat then you want to upgrade pay about 79 dollars per person per night an ocean -- cap and mean when you take into account audit -- -- -- here meals are combinations -- transportation between ports on entertainment.
Very -- what disappoint as if you're going to do it is one of these things is that on your list this is the year yes and Alaska -- that is some minutes on a lot of people's dream list of things to -- is it that -- -- when you combine the fact that domestic airfares are -- so hopefully that will bring extension project.
I was talked about driving vs flying but the third thing on your list is actually taking a driving trip -- I got to assume a lot of people are doing that this year.
You know get in the famine in the car -- just taking a trip somewhere where they can drive.
Exactly with average domestic -- averaging about 300 dollars per person yelling for contain up to 12100 dollars but taking a driving vacation as opposed to flying vacation that's big savings.
Local better ways you can look at three star hotels less than thirty dollars per person remains -- says geez unless they're taught her room different.
I'm 27 -- to -- Las Vegas strapped southerly route well he's 49 -- stand Austin and you're looking for a beach vacation Ocean City, Maryland but it doesn't affect -- So that -- a depending on where you live in the country certainly you don't that we we -- don't think -- driving to Vegas but a regular people who you know in California that would make a lot of that's.
And was so Austin is another one what's it mean other cities that you don't think of that are good places to drive or in other words are places that maybe aren't popular destinations for vacations getting more play this year.
