Visitors to Vegas Jump in June

Nearly 3.3 million people visited Las Vegas in June, an increase of four percent from the same month last year.

Occupancy also increased for the month to a rate of nearly 92 percent and the average daily room rate of rose 16 percent to $135.

Those figures are according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

The authority says part of the reason for the strong showing over last June is that consumers are growing more accustomed to high gasoline prices, which discouraged guests last year.

The uptick pushed visitation for the year to more than 19.6 million, an increase of 1.3 percent from the pace set in 2006.
