If money's too tight to take a trip to somewhere far-flung before summer's over, it seems you're not alone.

A new survey from online store retailmenot.ca says you are 1 out of every 4 Canadians who will take a stay-cation, instead of jetting off.

Their research would suggest sky-high prices for gasoline and hotel rooms are keeping 42 percent on respondents from their dream getaway.

More than a third said plane tickets are too expensive.

The study goes on to suggest that more than a quarter of Canadians only plan to spend $100 or less on travel before Fall comes.

The hotel's loss is the liquor store's gain.

Even with tight budgets research finds Canadians will spend up to $300 bucks on alcohol during their summer holidays.
