More drivers to hit the road this Memorial Day

Gas prices in North Carolina are becoming more driver friendly as the holiday weekend approaches.

As of Thursday, the North Carolina average stood at $3.55 per gallon of regular unleaded gas. Just last month, that price peaked at $3.91.

Prices at the pump are averaging about 22 cents cheaper than this time a year ago.

Those factors are possibly the reason the AAA of the Carolinas expects the summer travel kickoff this weekend to go up by about two percent.
