Lots Of Drivers To Hit Roads For Holidays

If you're hitting the road for the Independence Day holiday this weekend, you're going to be far from alone. AAA says holiday travelers can expect crowded roadways and higher gas and lodging prices this weekend.

The organization estimates over 34 million Americans nationwide will travel at least 50 miles from home this weekend, with about 90% of them getting there in personal vehicles. That's an increase of 19% from a year ago in western states.

Carlson says the national average price per gallon is $2.75.
