What Is Wrong With These Stories?

Free Gas Used As Incentive To Lure Summer Travelers

PORTLAND, Maine -- Resort towns worried that high gas prices will keep visitors away are offering an incentive from Maine to California: a free tank of gas.
July 4 Weekend To Be Busiest Ever, AAA Says

A survey by AAA predicts that 40.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home over the Fourth of July holiday.

That represents a 2.8 percent increase from the 39.2 million who traveled last year.

The survey finds that 33.9 million people -- 84 percent of holiday travelers -- expect to travel by car, despite rising gas prices.

"This will not only be the most heavily traveled Fourth of July ever, but this long weekend will actually put more American vacationers on the road than even the granddaddy of holiday travel weekends -- Thanksgiving," said AAA Travel Vice President Sandra Hughes.
Nothing like a consistent outlook.
