Holiday Travels

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Are you ready to hit the road for a holiday getaway? If so, you’ll be joining more than 93 million Americans expected to travel over the next week.

“It costs a lot. It’s a little better right now, but I don’t think it’s gonna last long,” said traveler Drew Land.
“For me, gas prices has went down because I go to school at Southern Miss and gas down there was $2.99 and it has went down extremely a lot,” said Abril Humphriex.
“Christmas season everybody travels a lot more than they usually do. Some places it’s fair price and like in Aberdeen there like 10 cents cheaper than anyone else,” added traveler William Head.

With so many people on the road in the coming days we remind drivers to practice safe driving and not text while driving.
