Falling Gas Prices Make For Record Number Of Holiday Travelers

It’s on track to be the busiest holiday for travel ever, and the American Auto Association (AAA) says you can credit that to falling gas prices.

The national average for a gallon of gas is now under $2 a gallon. That is the lowest prices have been since 2009.

Not only are the gas prices contributing to record travel for the holiday — the AAA says the time from Dec. 24 through Jan. 3 will be the busiest days of travel, ever.

Brad Durfee of Little Falls has been driving to Woodbury each Christmas for the last 30 years.

I have noticed that even though the gas prices are lower than they've been in the last seven years (since Obama's first election) the price of food, goods and services -- escalated under the guise that it was because of transportation costs (gas) -- have not come down at all. In fact, the cost of living short of gas has continued to rise, often beyond any reasonable margin. What's up with that?
