Fourth Of July

The poor economy and an increase in gas prices will push more Americans to stay at home this Fourth of July holiday weekend, AAA projects.The automotive association said it's expecting 37.1 million people to travel 50 miles or more from home over the weekend.

That's down almost 2 percent from the 37.8 million people who hit the road during the same period last year.A key factor in the projected decline in automobile travelers is a small spike in gasoline prices.

Fuel is less expensive compared with a year ago, but the average price for a gallon of regular gas in the Sacramento area is now $2.95 a gallon on average, about $1.55 less than a year ago.While a decline in car trips is driving an overall decrease in holiday travel, AAA is projecting air travel will increase by almost 5 percent.

That's thanks to declining airfares and pent-up demand among consumers who haven't taken a vacation by air in some time, the group said.
