Nearly 43-million Americans will start their summer on a high note with a Memorial Day weekend getaway. Triple-A Minnesota’s Mark Peterson says that’s a nearly four-percent increase over last year:

“Overall it’s an additional 1.5 million people that will be on the roadways, rails, runways — and that’s about a 3.6 percent increase which is pretty substantial. So it’s going to be an active holiday.”

This year’s travel projections represent the second-highest travel volume ever recorded by Triple-A.
