High Gas Prices Won't Stop RVers

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."

RVtravel. com polls its 75,000 email newsletter subscribers every week on their opinions and habits, providing a revealing insight into the RV lifestyle. An archive of past surveys is available at http://www. RVtravel. com (http://www. RVtravel. com).

InterExchange Discontinues H-2B Visa Program to Focus Resources on J-1 Visa and Working Abroad Programs

InterExchange Discontinues H-2B Visa Program to Focus Resources on J-1 Visa and Working Abroad Programs

InterExchange, Inc., a leading international cultural exchange organization, announced the discontinuation of its H-2B Visa USA program and will instead leverage these valuable resources to support its highly regarded J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor and Working Abroad programs in the U. S. and abroad.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2010

InterExchange, Inc., a leading international cultural exchange organization, announced the discontinuation of its H-2B Visa USA program and will instead leverage these valuable resources to support its highly regarded J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor and Working Abroad programs.

The InterExchange H-2B Program was launched in 2004 to match U. S. employers who have extended seasons with international staff seeking short-term work opportunities. The increasing regulatory complexities and politicization of the H-2B Visa have made it more challenging for U. S. seasonal employers and organizations like InterExchange to navigate what was once a viable, affordable and culturally rewarding option for meeting seasonal staffing needs.

"InterExchange has successfully facilitated cultural exchange experiences through J-1 Visa and Working Abroad programs for over 40 years by offering programs like Work & Travel USA, Career Training USA, Au Pair USA and Camp USA," said Christine La Monica-Lunn, InterExchange's CEO and Executive Director. "We're responding to the regulatory and marketplace changes by shifting resources from our H-2B program to our increasingly robust J-1 Visa programs. By making this shift, we are best able to fulfill our mission of creating cross-cultural experiences by matching qualified international staff with enriching short-term work opportunities in the U. S. as well as abroad."

InterExchange is one of the largest and most established organizations in the U. S. to offer J-1 Visa work programs. Larry Rothchild, InterExchange's Director of Business Development stated, "By focusing our resources on our Work & Travel USA and Career Training USA programs, we can deliver the highest level of support to U. S. employers with their recruitment needs for seasonal entry-level staff and professional level interns. InterExchange will also assist former H-2B employers who qualify for our J-1 Visa programs to transition to these international staffing opportunities."

Current H-2B Visa summer employers and staff can be assured that they will still enjoy the same high standard of customer service from InterExchange throughout the remainder of the season at http://www. interexchange. org/h2bvisa (http://www. interexchange. org/h2bvisa)

InterExchange, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cultural awareness through a variety of work exchange programs and is a U. S. Department of State J-1 Visa sponsor. For more than 40 years, InterExchange has been providing cultural exchange opportunities to students, professionals, families, and employers from all over the world. http://www. interexchange. org (http://www. interexchange. org)
