Despite an increase in gasoline prices since memorial day and a continued struggling economy, AAA of the Carolinas expects an uptick in the number of travelers this holiday weekend.

And gas prices are about a buck less a gallon than they were at this time last year.

AAA estimates that more than a million North Carolinians are expected to travel more than 50 miles from home this Labor Day holiday.

That's an increase of 12 and a half percent from Memorial Day this year.

Some families will travel even further than 50 miles like the Keims from Washington D.C., who have already headed to our beaches for a few days away from the daily grind.

Gas last year at this time was around $3.60 cents a gallon.
