How much effect will higher gas prices have on the camping/travel trailer business? At what point will camping slow down? $4/gal? $4.50/gal? +

Don't think this thread will last long as anyone who has an open mind knows why we are in this BAD situation of run away inflation at every level.

I don't think it will affect travel much at all. Prices rise and fall with supply and demand, not politics.

If an average trip required 100 gallons, we are currently around $100 more for that trip. In the grand scheme of things, not a high percentage really and if anything, it might just persuade folks to stay a little longer.

Lots of California gas stations are currently charging $4.599 per gallon for regular. No slow down here.

Average gas price in Alberta is $6.20/gal, hadn't seen it slow camping down this summer.

For the most part veteran/experienced campers don't let gas prices impact their camping.
If you are a dedicated camper like myself you cut back in other areas if necessary, but the camping show goes on.
The only way to get value out of any RV regardless of its cost is to USE it.!
Owning an RV and not using it is a bigger loss of $$$ than paying higher gas prices.

unless of course the supply is affected by other-than-market forces.

this year is unusual for us. no snowbirding this year (wife's surgery) and we never travel when school is not in session. we'll see what next fall brings but has prices have never stopped us from RVing.
