Wednesday Will Be A Busy Travel Day

(St. Louis) Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, is expected to be one of the busiest travel days of the year in Missouri, followed closely by Sunday.

Meredith Mitts, the spokeswoman for Triple-A auto club, says the number of people who are predicted to be traveling this week is up 13-percent from last year and it’s almost back to pre-pandemic levels.

Gas says regular unleaded gas prices in Missouri are up to an average three-dollars, six-cents a gallon, but Mitts says it’s due to much more than just supply and demand.

She says the higher gas prices are -not- expected to deter most drivers from hitting the road.
