41 Million People will hit the road for the 4th of July Weekend
An estimated 41 million people will journey at least 50 miles from home during the Independence Day holiday weekend July 2-6.
41 million will hit the road or take to the skies which would represent a 1.9 percent increase over the 40.3 million who traveled last Independence Day.
More than eight in 10 travelers will go by automobile, the highest level since the pre-recession holiday in 2007.
Most travelers will pay more for gas this year than any Independence Day since 2008. The national average price for a gallon of regular today is about 20 cents more than the average on July 4, 2013.
