Big 4th of July Weekend Expected

AAA is expecting a 4.9% increase in travel over last year for the 4th of July weekend.  Gas prices are .$16 lower, while airfare is the same as last year, according to AAA.  With the 4th on a Wednesday, the weekend could actually be expanded to 6 days for some travellers.  “AAA’s projection for a decade high number of Independence Day travelers is being fed by Americans’ appetite for travel, a mid-week holiday and lower gas prices,” said AAA Travel Services VP Bill Sutherland. “This is the second holiday this year where travelers indicated a determination to travel while economizing by actively seeking value-added travel options and activities.”
