Vegas visitors expected to be up slightly for 4th

By Associated Press


LAS VEGAS >> Tourism officials say they expect a very slight increase in the number of Las Vegas visitors this Independence Day holiday, compared with last year.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/LQoJww) that the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority expects 312,000 visitors to the city from Wednesday through the weekend.

That's up 0.6 percent from Fourth of July weekend in 2011.

AAA says travel nationwide is expected to be up 4.9 percent, with 42.3 million Americans venturing 50 miles or more from home.

Officials say a recent decrease in gasoline prices should help.

Fuel costs an average of $3.32 per gallon for regular compared with $3.56 per gallon in 2011.
