AAA Carolinas expects record travel by Tar Heels

CHARLOTTE (AP) — AAA Carolinas is predicting a record number of North Carolinians will travel 50 miles or more during the Christmas-New Year’s holiday period.
The 12-day Christmas/New Year’s travel holiday is defined as Saturday, Dec. 21 through Wednesday, Jan. 1, which is one day longer than the travel period last year.
The club predicts 2,826,500 people will be traveling. As they make their way in the state, they’ll find gas prices currently average $3.23, the same price as a year ago. After falling to a year-low of $3.19 on Nov. 14, average prices rose to $3.33 on Nov. 27, but have fallen steadily since then.
Motorists can find the cheapest gasoline in North Carolina in High Point at $3.18 a gallon and the most expensive gas in Boone at $3.30.
