Only 39.8% of consumers plan to take a vacation within the next six months, a 28-year low, the Conference Board said Tuesday.In addition to Lombard, it's my understanding there is something happening in Naperville.
That's the fourth consecutive decline measured by the organization, which asks the question every other month. ***
One-third of respondents in the survey of 1,000 adults taken Friday through Sunday said they are changing summer vacation plans because of higher gas prices.
Of those changing plans, 37% said they would reduce the number of trips normally taken, while 26% said they're canceling plans or simply can't afford to vacation. Some 23% will take shorter trips.
