Some Local Travelers Leave Early To Beat The Weather

Between winter storms, higher gas prices and more people on the roads--it may be a good idea to get a jump on your trip out of town.

Thanksgiving week starts the beginning of the holiday travel season.

Caitlyn Wyant is headed to New Jersey and decided to leave from the Pitt-Greenville Airport a day early because of the storm.

Winter weather expected Tuesday and Wednesday to the west and north of us could complicate air travel to places other than here at home.

Those sticking closer to home are more worried about eh the gas prices, which have inched up to an average of $3.30 a gallon.

Cassidy Clauson of Greenville says, "About two weeks ago gas was $3.09 and then I came here today thinking it would be about the same and it was $3.33."

A total of 1.2-million North Carolinians are expected to travel 50-miles or more from home, an increase of 36,000 drivers compared to last year.
