Fewer Drivers Expected to Hit the Roads Over the Memorial Day Weekend – Jim Nash Reports

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) – While the roads were clogged across Southern California for the holiday getaway Friday, travel experts said they actually expected fewer families to travel by car this year.

Nearly 35 million people were expected to hit the road for the Memorial Day holiday across the United States.

But that was about 1 percent less than last year, according to AAA.

Experts blamed the economy and high gas prices for the decline.
