Memorial Day travelers hit the road


WAUSAU (WAOW)--It's the unofficial start to summer and many motorists are hitting the road to make the most out of Memorial Day weekend.

Bill Reddick is preparing to travel south on a motorcycle trip to Spring Green this weekend. He says the price of gas is too high to drive his car. Reddick told Newsline 9, "I don't know why they don't do something about it."

Not everyone is staying home this year. AAA says nearly 700,000 state residents will likely hit the road this weekend, that's about the same number as last year. That surprises some because gas prices are up about $1 a gallon compared to last summer.
