Memorial Day Travel Expected To Rise With Lower Gas Prices


If you’re heading out of town today for Memorial Day weekend, hopefully you’re already on the way.  Because if you aren’t, you might want to wait  AWHILE.

A new study looked at Memorial Day weekend traffic, and found that things get REALLY clogged on the roads today until after 7:00 P.M.  The absolute worst time to hit the road is between 3:00 and 4:00 P.M. But . . . believe it or not, if you waited until today to skip town, you’re actually better off than the people who tried to get a jump.

The absolute WORST Memorial Day traffic every year is on Thursday . . . and the second-worst is on Wednesday. In fact, the Thursday before Memorial Day has the WORST traffic of any day of the entire year.
