WASHINGTON ( TheStreet) -- Gas is up to $4 a gallon and airfares are up 6% to 11% or more. Who's ready for summer travel?Despite the rising cost of taking a trip, American Express' (AXP - Get Report) Spending and Saving Tracker found that 59% of Americans plan on traveling this summer. How they plan on doing so varies dramatically, as 38% of consumers are continuing their post-recession frugality and saving up for their vacation. As roughly 25% say they'll try saving on other portions of their trip to offset plane tickets or prices at the pump, Travelocity senior editor Genevieve Shaw Brown recommends travelers shave off some costs by giving greater consideration to where they sleep.
