Get ready to play slug bug, bingo and eye spy… it’s time to hit the road!

The Associated Press says that some 30.7 million travelers will hit the road this weekend and will travel at least 50 miles. That’s 400 thousand more travelers on the roadways than last year. According to AAA, the total number of travelers this holiday weekend increases to 34.8 million when you include planes, trains and other means of transportation.

On average a gallon of gasoline is 12 cents cheaper a gallon this year than a year ago. This means that even though travelers this weekend will burn about 1.2 billion gallons of gas, they’ll spend around 144 million less on gasoline.

Across the country consumers spent more money restaurants and bars in April.  Analysts hope that consumers will continue to use their gasoline savings in restaurants, at the movies and with retailers.
