Finally! SOC Has Been Calling For This For Years

Given the price of gas and air baggage fees, for the first time since 2002, fewer Americans plan to travel over Memorial Day weekend than the year before. Twelve percent of the U.S. population, says AAA, will travel this weekend, down 1% from last year.
Gas prices are up 19% since Memorial Day 2007. The average car rental is up 45%, average airfare up 8% and typical economy hotel room up 9%.

If people stay home this summer and show the sheiks and charlatans that we won't take this, they will have no choice but to lower prices.
