Thursday's story ideas

Memorial Day weekend plans... are people canceling their traditional drives due to gas prices?

Summer vacation bargains. In light of gas prices, I've been getting deluged with offers from places that are normally booked solid. What is this doing to the travel industry for summer?

Paying for checked baggage. American will hit you for $15 per bag, and other airlines might follow.

Small market airports are losing service, as airlines are simply cutting routes.

Telemarketing scams are on the rise again, despite the do not call list. Find out what's going on in your market.

Scientists say it is hard to recruit women for medical studies. (Apparently men have no problems being guinea pigs.)

Some theater chains will soon be charging full price for every ticket, including those for children.
