Record travel expected over July 4th holiday [NBC San Antonio]
June 30, 2019
(NBC News) Getting to your favorite fireworks display or away for the long July 4th weekend could take a little longer this year.
Record travel is expected during the holiday week.
“We are projecting that the travel is going to pick up on Wednesday before the holiday, and in those larger actual areas, you’re going to see travel times from two to four times longer than normal,” says AAA’s Tamra Johnson.
Johnson says the increase in travelers is fueled by a good economy and gas prices almost 20 cents a gallon cheaper than Independence Day last year.
