An official with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says he’s not sure if higher gas prices will affect tourism in Sin City.  Senior marketing director Kevin Bagger tells the “Las Vegas Sun” his agency will keep an eye on traffic coming from major markets such as Southern California to determine if rising fuel prices are keeping visitors away.  Triple-A says as of Friday, the average gas price in Nevada is up to three-dollars 57-cents-per-gallon, and California’s price is nearly 30-cents higher.  Drive-in traffic accounts for 60-percent of Las Vegas’ tourism business.
