Big travel weekend despite fuel prices

(KLZA)-- Memorial day weekend is expected to be the busiest in three years.

AAA is forecasting the second largest single-year increase in travelers since 2010.

Reservations for flights, hotels, and cruises for Memorial Day weekend are twice as strong as last years holiday. 39.2 million Americans are expected to travel for this holiday weekend, an 8.3 percent increase from 2021.

89 percent of travelers will drive, despite record-high gas prices. Gas prices are likely to be the highest on record for Memorial Day.

The average price per gallon in the nation on Tuesday was $4.59 per gallon. In Nebraska and Missouri the average price per gallon was $4.16. In Kansas the average price for a gallon of gas was $4.06.

Gas prices in California earlier this week were averaging $6.06 per gallon.

Previously the highest average price for a gallon of gas on Memorial Day in Nebraska was $3.94 in 2013.
