High Gas Prices Won't Stop RVers
More than two-thirds of RVers surveyed by RVtravel. com reported that even if today's high gas prices continue to increase, they will spend just as much time on the road as when prices were lower.
SEATTLE, WA (PRWEB) April 20, 2004
Most RVers will keep traveling even if gas prices increase according to an April survey by RVtravel. com.
Only five percent of the more than 2,400 respondents said they would stop traveling by recreational vehicle if gas reached $2.50 a gallon. More than 60 percent said they would spend the same amount of time in their recreational vehicles, although many of them would drive fewer miles.
"These results aren't surprising," said Chuck Woodbury, editor of RVtravel. com. "RVers don't move around every day so the cost of fuel isn't as significant as it is with many other motorists. Most drive to a campground then stay awhile. A round-trip of 200 miles only costs about $20 more at $2.50 a gallon than at $1.50, and that extra expense won't keep most RVers home."
