Heavy Travel Forecasted For Memorial Day Weekend

A survey carried out by AAA shows Memorial Day weekend travel will be at its busiest in 10 years. Theresa Podguski, Director of Legislative Affairs at AAA East Central says, drivers will be on the roads and highways in large numbers.

“Approximately 37.2 million motorists plan to travel at least 50 miles for their Memorial day festivities.”

Podguski adds, lower gas prices this year compared to last year will increase travel on the first unofficial weekend of summer.
