Record number of travelers expected to hit the road during Memorial Day holiday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Expect a record number of drivers on the road this holiday weekend.

Triple A says more than 38 million people will pack up their cars for Memorial Day. If the experts are right on this one, it will mark the highest number of travelers since 2005 and the second-highest number ever for the holiday. 

Gas prices are the driving factor in the increase.

The national average for a gallon of regular is currently $2.28 - nearly 50 cents - less than last year.
