AAA projects more than 40 million Americans will celebrate the July 4th holiday with summer getaway.
A Triple A survey shows 41 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the holiday weekend, a 1.9 percent increase over last year. In Wisconsin AAA projects 872,000 motorists a 2.2 percent increase. AAA spokesperson Pam Moen says the majority of travelers, more than eight in 10
will travel by automobile, the highest level since 2007. On the downside, Moen says travelers will likely pay the highest gas prices for Independence Day in six years.
