Memorial Day travel trends down

Air and road travel is expected to be down this year, according to AAA Travel, thanks to sequestration cuts.

AAA predicts Illinois will see a 7% drop in air travel and a 1% drop in road travel.

Area gas prices also play a role – averaging $4.06 per gallon this year, up from last year’s $3.87 per gallon.
