I'm just wondering how many people may have to reconsider trips later in the year with the price of gas and airfare going up? I've seen some reports that say we may see almost $4 a gallon gas by the end of the year and I know from watching ticket prices that the airlines are raising prices. I went ahead and bought my tickets for Nov/Dec earlier last week because tickets that I'd started out budgeting at $600 were up to $1400 on some airlines and that would have prevented us from taking the trip. I've got extra in the budget but not that much. I got my tickets for $677 but had to fly out about 4 hours later than I'd wanted to do it but at least we're still going! I have a friend who is going about a month before us and they're seriously considering changing their plans and buying plane tickets now, while they know what the price is rather than driving and possibly spending a lot more money on gas than they'd planned.
