Gas Prices Up, Travel Down For Holiday

Many people will be packing up and heading out this week traveling to go see their loved ones for the holidays.

But according to Triple A Carolinas, they're predicting travel to be down from years past because of the tough economy and high gas prices.

This time last year the average price of unleaded gas in our state was under two dollars at $1.61 and now the average price is $2.54.

That's almost a dollar more.

But despite the high price many in the east say that wouldn't effect them from going to see their families.

Triple A also also says the recent snow and possibility of more this weekend may also effect people's travel plans.
