Expect Crowded Roads For Independence Day Weekend

AAA projects the number of Americans traveling this Fourth of July holiday weekend will increase 17.1 percent from 2009, with approximately 34.9 million travelers taking a trip at least 50 miles away from home. Trips by automobile are expected to increase in popularity with 90 percent of travelers, or 31.4 million people, driving.

AAA expects the national average price of self-serve regular gasoline to be between $2.70-$2.80 per gallon during this Fourth of July holiday weekend. The Fourth of July also marks the busiest travel holiday for emergency roadside services calls.
