Lower Gas Prices Mean More Travelers On The Road [POLL]

Gas prices here in East Texas were around $3.82 in mid-April and now two and a half months later prices have fallen around $0.70 here in East Texas.  Now, don’t get me wrong $3.15 a gallon is still on the high side for gas, but it’s cheaper than it was a couple of months ago and with lower gas prices, AAA says there will be more people on the road for the 4th of July holiday weekend than in the past decade.

AAA is estimating that nearly 43 million people will be hitting the road for the 4th of July and their trips will be around 150 miles longer than usual.  They are attributing this spike in holiday travel to lower gas prices, lower car rental rates and lower air fares.

Seeing how this holiday falls in the middle of the week, AAA expects the nations highways to be the busiest on June 29th and again on July 3rd.
