Do High Gas Prices Mean Fewer Tourists Visiting Lubbock? Not necessarily

Rex Andrew, kfyo.com

High gas prices mean less travel and tourism, right? Not necessarily.

On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, John Osborne, the CEO of both Visit Lubbock and LEDA, presented some encouraging statistics.

“The interesting part is that we’ve actually continued to see record numbers.   Even over last year, as gas prices increased during the year, 15 of the last 16 months, and 17 of the last 19 months, if you look at the total lodging revenue that’s come into this city, which is a good indicator of how tourism is doing, that month was better than the year previous.”

Osborne said Lubbock is the sixth most traveled destination among the top 26 Texas cities.
