A few more Carolinians on road for Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The motor club keeping an eye on the highways across the Carolinas says there will be a few more motorists on the road for Thanksgiving because of a significant drop in the price of gasoline.

AAA Carolinas says there will be a 1 percent increase in the number of people driving during the four-day holiday. Spokesman Tom Crosby attributes the increase to a 54-cent drop in the price of a gallon of gasoline at North Carolina pumps since mid-September.

Traveling in South Carolina will be even less painful. The average price of $3.13 per gallon there is the cheapest in the country.

Construction projects in North Carolina are suspended during the holiday. In South Carolina, contractors are required to keep all lanes open during heavy holiday travel periods.
