Tuesday, June 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm
Gas prices are predicted to deter some Virginians from traveling this Fourth of July holiday weekend, with close to 1.1 million expected to celebrate Independence Day with a trip of 50 miles or more from home.
A decrease of about 2.4 percent in the number of travelers is expected from last year’s holiday.
The July 2010 numbers represented a robust increase in the number of Virginian’s traveling for Fourth of July, said Martha Meade of the American Automobile Association.
