BOSTON (CBS) — Almost three-quarters of Americans plan to stay home for the July Fourth holiday, a survey shows. According to Finance Buzz, 72% of people said they would be staying home.

An additional 15% will be staying local. Only three-percent plan to drive more than two hours from home.

Summer travel is down overall. The survey said 69% of Americans will take fewer or no road trips compared to last summer.

RVs and campers are a popular option for those looking to travel, though. Half of the people purchasing or renting RVs are doing so to avoid flying. Thirty-eight percent of prospective RVs have never driven one before, according to the survey.

State and national parks could still be crowded: 47% of campers plan to stay at a state park and 41% plan to stay at a national park.
