KXNT Radio reports the struggling economy is hitting Las Vegas hard in its tourism industry. The number of visitors coming to Vegas has fallen 10 percent compared to a year ago, which represents the largest decline since the weeks immediately after 9/11. Economists say the downturn this time around is different and will run much deeper. Casino revenues have shown nine straight months of decline through 2008.
