Heavy Holiday Traffic Despite Higher Gas Prices

Chicot Memorial

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Local law enforcement is urging drivers to use care when traveling the highways during the busy holiday season which begins today. AAA projects that 2.5 million more people nationally will travel 50 miles away or more from home than last year this Thanksgiving Day weekend. Locally, area Sheriff’s say drivers should plan ahead and take their time. Although gas prices are 31 cents higher on average than last Thanksgiving, travel is expected to be heavier than usual, according to AAA. Peak travel time is expected from 2:00 PM until 7:00 PM today.
