(BELLEVUE, Wash.) -- The extra cost of filling up at the pump isn't stopping some Americans from at least dreaming about driving across the country, according to the travel website Expedia.
In a recent survey, Expedia learned that while a quarter of men and a third of women say they have never gone coast-to-coast in a car, they’ve “always wanted to.”
And even though the distance seems daunting, millions have apparently gone the distance. In fact, the survey found that 41 percent have driven across the country and that nearly half of the male respondents claim to have made the trip.
However, as gas prices keep rising, the tendency is to stick closer to home when making vacation plans, the survey said.
Over 2,260 adults were interviewed for the survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Expedia.
