Holiday Travel

UNDATED (AP) -- This is getaway day for what's looked at as the unofficial start of summer. Millions of people will be climbing into their cars or getting on airplanes for the Memorial Day weekend.

Gas prices are high: averaging three-23 a gallon. But that's not expected to keep people from traveling. Triple-A has said it thinks people will still take their summer vacations but will try to spend less on hotels and restaurants.

So what would make people change their plans?

A recent Washington Post-A-B-C News poll found that gasoline would have to reach four-38 a gallon before Americans would significantly cut back on their driving.
