AAA predicts slight dip in July 4th travel

AAA predicts slight dip in July 4th travel

AAA is projecting 40.8 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Independence Day holiday, a 0.8% decrease from last year.

Steve Pacer with AAA of Western and Central New York says the anticipated decline is predominantly due to a shorter holiday period.

Pacer says gas prices are unlikely to be a major factor in travel decisions this holiday, as people are used to the high costs and they remain below their highs of earlier this year.
