Millions of Independence Day travelers expected

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Independence Day is the busiest summer travel holiday.

AAA says about 40 million people will travel away from home over the weekend.

Driver Gail Harris says she wants to avoid the traffic and any dangerous situations. She's decided not to travel this year.

“The people coming from north Georgia and Tennessee traveling down through there. They are in such a hurry to get to Florida they don't pay attention to how close they're cutting to the front of your car. I got pushed off the road twice between here and Whigham, Georgia,” said Gail Harris.

Gas prices are also expected to be the highest it's been in seven years this holiday.
