More travelers projected for July 4th weekend

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- More people are traveling this holiday weekend than last year.

AAA projects 35 million Americans will take a trip at least 50 miles away from home. That's up more than 17 percent from last year.

Lower gas prices help. Just two years ago the national average was more than four dollars a gallon.

Currently, the national average is $2.78 per gallon. The Iowa average is $2.69.
