Experts don’t expect Memorial Day weekend travel boom

NEW YORK (AP) – Travel experts say expect another summer of steady, but slow, recovery, if things go well.

Airlines, hotels and campgrounds are commanding higher rates and seeing more customers than a few summers ago, and luxury hotels are selling out. But large segments of the population are staying close to home because wages are stagnant, rents are high and the end of the payroll tax holiday has shrunk their take-home pay.

AAA isn’t expecting a resounding start to summer this Memorial Day weekend.
