YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – There is certainly no place like home for the holidays. AAA expects 100 million Americans will travel for the holiday, setting a first-time record.
It credits better labor markets and lower gas prices for the spike in holiday travel.
On Sunday, WKBN caught up with Arthur Perry, who is on his way back to Connecticut. He says he likes the gas prices in Ohio.
“In Connecticut, we’re probably about $2.20 a gallon,” he said. “Coming out here and seeing it at $1.60, $1.70, $1.80 is great, but it definitely does help.”
Perry’s trip back home is just under 400 miles, and should take him seven hours.
