Holiday Travel Begins


Holiday travel is already underway as millions of Americans get ready to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. AAA expects about a hundred million people will travel this holiday season and most of them will be driving to their destinations.

The cost of gas is playing a major role in why more people are driving this year. According to AAA, the average price for a regular gallon nationwide is $2.01. That’s down from 37 cents from this time last year.
