Fewer Expected to Hit the Roads for Independence Day Weekend

Posted: Updated:
Fewer people are expected to be on the roads for the holiday weekend, despite falling gas prices, according to the Auto Club.

AAA said about 37 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or farther from home on the July 4th weekend.

This is a two percent decline from last year, attributed in part by AAA to the bad economy and rising unemployment.
