Memorial Day Travel and Gas Prices

Even though the travel agency, AAA predicted more Americans traveling this Memorial day than last year, some Greenville residents we spoke to say they prefer to lay low and celebrate the holiday locally. Some cited gas prices as a reason and others said they just wanted to avoid the overcrowding altogether. AAA says the number of Americans traveling by plane this Memorial Day is expected to rise by one percent to 4.4 million. They say those who will travel by car, will drive shorter distances than past years.
