This weekend is expected to set a record for the number of Americans traveling by car for the holiday.

AAA says 43.2 million people are expected to drive to their destinations, benefiting from lower gas and diesel prices, thanks to the lower cost of oil.

Prepare for Travel Delays While Working

Workers should expect their route to take longer and have more delays.

INRIX, a transportation data provider, expects this will be the busiest day on the roads during the holiday weekend, with average travel times up nearly 30% over normal.

Bob Pishue, transportation analyst at INRIX recommends using traffic apps, local DOT notifications, and 511 services to minimize holiday travel traffic frustrations
