“See the USA in Your Chevrolet Honda Minivan”

“No Relief for Air Travelers.”

Headline; The New York Times (12/15/2014)

If gas prices stay low and airfares remain sky-high (sorry), I predict that this summer will be the biggest year for family holday_inncar trips since . . . the ’60’s(?!?).

Back then, families on the road sought out middle-brow fare like Holiday Inn (“no surprises”) and Howard Johnson’s.

Today, I suppose the equivalent would be Embassy Suites, Marriott Courtyard, and LaQuinta.

P.S.:  One key difference between then and now:  portable, individualized electronic entertainment.
