NEW YORK (WKOW) -- If you have plans to hit the road or jump on a plane during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, you are one of many.

AAA expects about 32.1 million people will go on trips. That's a 5.4% increase over last year.

AAA expects most will travel by car even though gas prices are up about 50 cents a gallon over last year.

The forecast is based on research by IHS Global Insight.
