The busiest days are expected to be Thursday and Friday, May 24 and 25. “The highest gas prices since 2014 won’t keep travelers home this Memorial Day weekend,” said Bill Sutherland, senior vice president, AAA Travel and Publishing. “A strong economy and growing consumer confidence are giving Americans all the motivation they need to kick off what we expect to be a busy summer travel season with a Memorial Day getaway.”
According to AAA, the more than 36 million drivers expected to hit the roads can expect to hit the worst traffic the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day.
AAA also named the top 10 travel destinations throughout the U.S. this Memorial Day.
