Tight Budgets Affect Americans on Independence Day


In a recent survey conducted by market research company Sensors Quality Management Inc., 1000 American adults were asked, "What do you plan on doing during the July 4th long weekend?"

Of those surveyed, 32% indicated they would be staying in town, and 29% would be doing a staycation involving day trips.

Of the remaining respondents, 23% indicated they would be traveling outside of the country.

Almost half of those surveyed (48%) mentioned that their plans would include a bbq or hitting the beach.

Comments in the survey indicated that the decline of trips and vacations is caused by the need to take care of young children and the increasing price of travel, hotels, and gas.

More than one person stated, “With the price of gas being so high, I don't have much freedom to celebrate… which is ironic, since it's July the 4th!”
