As the holiday weekend wraps up today, AAA Carolinas says more travelers are on the roads than any other time of the year. As travelers make their way back home later today, AAA Carolinas spokesperson Lori Jo Simmons says beware of the amount of traffic on the roads.
It’s the highest road travel weekend. In the summertime, people do tend to fly, and take trains, and cruises and things like that, but this is the highest drive vacation weekend.
Simmons warns motorists not to travel over the speed limit, not just because of the law, but she says you use more gas the faster you go. The average price of gas in South Carolina this year is a dollar more than last year.
