Traveling Through Gas Prices

Traveling Through Gas Prices

(NAPSI)-If you plan to get away from it all this season, you may have some company despite high gas prices. Powersporters-owners of RVs, travel trailers, boats and motorcycles-say that even if gas prices go up, their love for their lifestyle has them willing to "pay to play."
In fact, nearly 70 percent of powersporters say they will not change their vacation plans because of high prices, according to a Nationwide Mutual Insurance survey.
"Gas would have to cost nearly twice as much before they would stop using their vehicles," said Mitch Roggemann of Nationwide's Property & Casualty Specialty Products. Additional findings include:
_ Motorcyclists said they'd pay $3.38 per gallon before using their vehicles less frequently.
_ Fuel prices would have to go as high as $6.27 per gallon for people to stop using their vehicles.
_ RV owners will drive 819 miles per trip.

A survey found that high gas prices won't cause people to put the brakes on seasonal travel.
