The Fourth of July Holiday Weekend is approaching quickly and triple A is projecting that less people will travel this summer because of a bad economy and gas prices.
Triple A said that it expects 37.1 million travelers to take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home this year, that's a decrease of 1.9 percent from last year.
Within the past few weeks gas prices have continued to increase.
Wednesday the average price of unleaded gas in our state is $2.63, a month ago it was $2.36.
Gas prices are actually lower in our state than this time last year, when they were at a whopping $3.97 cents.
