WEST TEXAS - One local company says the numbers are in, West Texans will see another "staycation" season.

That's because many are canceling plans for big, expensive vacations.

Allstate reports planning for vacations dropped 22 percent from 2007 to 2008, and so far, it's the same trend this year.

They say many West Texans are staying home or just traveling shorter distances.

Allstate says the biggest factors are job stress and finances.
