WCPO Published May 24, 2018

Rumble - Despite a recent spike in gas prices, transportation officials expect this Memorial Day weekend to be one of the busiest Tri-State roadways have seen in nearly 15 years. According to AAA, this weekend could see the highest number of travelers since 2005 when you include those traveling not only by car but also by plane, train, bus and cruise ships. In Ohio alone, the motor club projects more than 1.6 million people have holiday travel plans. Most of those people will travel by car, said AAA Ohio spokeswoman Jenifer Moore. "The vast majority of this year's Memorial Day journeys -- nearly 9 in 10 nationally -- will be road trips on our highways," Moore said.
