Gas Prices Having Positive Impact on Vacation Travel

Vacationers are not wasting anytime this year on planning and booking summer vacations. Our reservations are coming in at a faster rate than any other time since 2007, and we may surpass that. Gas is anywhere from $1.87 to $1.83 for unleaded gas. It is crazy at the pumps in International Falls, Ontario cars and trucks are coming to town in droves filling upĀ  tanks on vehicles and as many six gallon gas cans as they can. I have never seen anything like it before.

Beware though not all gas prices have come down. I just returned from an Ontario winter lake trout fishing trip. Gas prices in Ontario remain sky high. A liter of unleaded gas was pricedĀ  anywhere from $1.05 to $1.08, that is $4.00 plus per gallon.

If would start planning your Rainy Lake Houseboat vacation sooner rather than later. Out of state reservations are coming as fast as I can member. The whole cost of a vacation has dropped drastically with the energy cost reductions.

At Rainy Lake Houseboats your dollar is always at full value. The dollar has become worth 14-18% more than the Canadian dollar. Sounds good, well it usually is not in Ontario, resort , almost all fly-in fishing, and canoe outfitting industries are all quoted in U.S. dollars. You lose the exchange rate you should be gaining.

Now is the time to come visit Rainy Lake Houseboats, Rainy Lake and Voyageurs National Park. World class vacationing, scenery, fishing and relaxation is at its very best!
