Do you have unconventional vacation plans?

With gas hovering around $4 per gallon, are you making some unconventional vacation plans or taking a "staycation" this year? Share your insight with MPR News. Our Public Insight Analysts wonder:

Will gas prices siphon vacationers from the roads? Or will it push more travelers into cars?

Some wonder if fuel costs will hamper the summertime vacation trade. Others in the resort/hotel/hospitality business in Minnesota think it might actually help. What's your experience?

Please tell us.
