Holiday travelers hitting the road for the unofficial start of summer have some budget adjustments to make with gasoline prices at record highs.
But Triple A still expects the roads to be crowded. The auto club estimates more than 31-and-a-half million drivers will take to the highways. That's just slightly lower than last year despite the fact that the price of gasoline is more than 60 cents a gallon higher this year.
The auto club says oceans and beaches seem to be the favorite destination. Analysts predict the average price could rise as high as $3.90 a gallon this Memorial Day weekend and easily blast past $4 in coming weeks.
Some motorists say they are staying closer to home.
