The article reports that Las Vegas, Nevada visitation dropped by 10.2% or 3 million people in October 2008. The decline is allegedly another indicator that the economy in Las Vegas is suffering from an aftermath of several years of living on cheap gasoline, easy mortgage money and generous airline service. The report also indicates a 14.3% drop in average daily room rates. Kevin Bagger, director of Internet marketing and research of the authority, said that people are not spending at the level they used to in the past.
