Tue State leaders speak out about summer tourism

MONTPLIE, W. (WCAX) – State leaders assess the prospects for summer tourism in Vermont. Many schools are closed and American families are planning their summer holidays.

Many steep gas prices collide with expensive plane tickets. Gov. Phil Scott says this, along with inflation, is a concern.

But he says many people in the region are choosing to drive rather than fly, and that could draw people to Vermont.

“Things are looking good for now and it looks like some of the supply chain issues are easing,” the governor said. Scott said. “But gas prices are too high.”

The Governor says some supply chain issues are starting to resolve themselves. But he says labor shortages will remain a problem this summer.
