    With this summer's high gas prices, Americans are trading in their traditional vacations for "staycations" – vacations much closer to home. But compared with other things Americans might do, driving is still a bargain.
    Consider, for example, the costs of going to a movie:
    To take a family of four to a movie at an AMC Theatre, it will cost anywhere from $55.75 to $71.50, depending on whether the family shares movie snacks or not, and this does not even include gasoline.
