High travel rates by state residents is expected to remain high this year. AAA-Mid Atlantic sent out its travel survey results of the Memorial Day weekend and nearly the same amount as people as last year will be traveling over 50 miles this year. Around 936,000 people from New Jersey will make those trips, with 841,000 of those moving via automobile. A survey of intended travelers found that six out of ten said rising gasoline prices would not impact their travel plans. Of the remaining four out of ten travelers who said rising gas prices would impact their travel plans, 70 percent will economize in other areas and the rest will take a shorter trip or travel by an alternate mode of transportation. The current New Jersey average price for regular gasoline is $3.81, compared to $2.71 this time last year.
