The weather is warming up and schools are letting out and that means summer vacations for millions.
American Express says about 75% of us will take a summer vacation this year and that's way up from just a couple of years ago. AAA says the average American will spend 1,246 dollars on the trip. Airline tickets are up 6 per cent and hotels are up about 5 per cent. Need some good news? Rental cars and gas prices are about where they were a year ago.
