Travelers are now taking more short road trips

More travelers are taking more short road trips. Would you agree? There are good reasons behind that, as what I suggested in my recent discussion on MiltiBriefs
  • It becomes more troublesome and more expensive in air travel. 
  • Gas price is getting cheaper this summer.   
  • The green trend of #staycations and #staylocal continues to grow. 

In addition, my friends added the following explanations of this trend:

  • Americans are using less vacation time for real vacations. Instead, they use the vacation time for other things, such as the school events for kids, doctor's appointments, home improvement, etc. 
  • It is getting more expensive to take a long vacation, and the middle class is shrinking in the U.S. 

Do you see this trend coming? If so, what are your explanations?
