More Texas Travel Expected For Memorial Day

IRVING (AP) – Texans planning to hit the road over Memorial Day weekend will likely have plenty of company.

AAA on Monday projected about 3 million Texans will travel 50 miles or more from home Thursday through Memorial Day. That’s about 2 percent more than the number of Texas travelers during the 2013 Memorial Day holiday period.

Doug Shupe with AAA Texas talks about the projected travel numbers.
