(WKBN)- If you plan to, you will be sharing the road with many people. Travel over Memorial Day weekend.
That’s why AAA offers some tips to get you to your destination quickly and safely.
About 5.9 million people in the East-North-Central region, which includes Ohio, are expected to travel for the holiday, according to AAA. It increased by 5.6% compared to last year.
AAA encourages drivers to be “road trip ready” by undergoing a full vehicle inspection. It is important to check the major components of the vehicle such as the battery, fuel system, tires, brakes and fluid levels.

For those lucky enough to head out this weekend, gas prices are down this holiday compared to last year when the national average was more than $4 a gallon, according to AAA. But even with cheaper prices, car travel this holiday will fall below the pre-pandemic number of about 500,000 travelers.
