Memorial Day Traffic Is Going To Be ‘Bad’

Maciej Korzekwa

With Memorial Day weekend comes many hitting the roads for the first road trip of the summer. Which also mean there will be traffic jams galore on the highways, thruway, and streets. Just how bad will it be this year though?

Well, AAA expects 36.1 million people to be traveling this weekend. Yes, 36.1 million.

That a 15% increase from last year’s expect number of people to travel 50 or more miles from home for the holiday weekend. 88% of those people are expected to be traveling via vehicle.

AAA COO Marshall Doney says the winter combined with a rebounding economy is what’s leading people to hit the road.

The winter blues appear to have given Americans the travel bug and a case of cruise cabin fever as travel for the holiday is expected to hit a new post-recession high.

AAA expects gas prices to slip a bit before Memorial Day itself, which we all know it will rise shortly thereafter as it does every year.
