AAA says cost of vacation up 6 percent in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The cost of a family vacation is up by 6 percent in Oklahoma this year.

AAA Oklahoma says a family of four can expect to spend $200 a day on food and lodging which is a 6 percent increase from last year. The average is fifth lowest in the nation behind Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and North Dakota.

The average doesn't include the cost of gasoline which is now averaging just over $2.66 per gallon in Oklahoma for self-serve regular.

The most expensive state for a vacation is Hawaii at an average cost of $559 a day for a family of four while the nationwide average is $261 a day.

AAA began tracking vacation costs in 1950 when the average cost of food and lodging for a family of four was $13.
