Inflationxa0isn't keeping Americans from having fun this Memorial Day weekend

·1 min

Americans are defying inflation and embracing travel as Memorial Day weekend approaches. Airports in the US saw their second-busiest day with almost 2.9 million travelers passing through TSA checkpoints on Thursday. AAA predicts a record-breaking 38.4 million people will take road trips over the long weekend. Despite complaints about the economy and inflation, households in the United States are in good shape, according to an economist. Inflation has slowed but remains higher than pre-pandemic levels. People are still willing to spend on travel and leisure, with consumer spending increasing for 12 consecutive months. The demand for travel is expected to continue growing during the summer season.
