Silly Americans

Tired of paying $3.40 a gallon for gas? Talk to these people:

Because of the hike in fuel prices, the average driver is about $1,000 poorer than they were at this time last year, Montgomery said.

That's 357 caramel macchiatos from Starbucks. Or 21 adult-admission tickets to Disneyland.

Despite this, Montgomery said, more state motorists than ever are expected to hit the roads this summer.

This is California after all, where the road-trip was perfected, if not invented.

“Logic would tell you people aren't going to travel,” she said. “But people who want to take that trip will find a way to do it.”

Travelers are still opting to travel by car, rather than train or plane, but are modifying their trips, she said.

And some people think we can still conserve our way out of this mess...
