At a gas station in Pilson, regular gas is priced at $4.19 per gallon. Atlanta's average was up about 60 cents over where it stood about a year ago, according to Gas Buddy.

The busiest days will be Thursday and Friday as commuters mix with holiday travelers.

Commutes could take twice as long at that time on roads that lead from York to beach spots and cities in the mid-Atlantic region.

"We've got good economic factors, people have planned to travel for the holiday weekend and Memorial Day is the kickoff to the summer travel season, so (travelers) aren't letting the increase at the pumps hinder their holiday weekend", said Tracy Noble, manager of public and government affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Getting from point A to point B is pricier. She has kept her eyes on recent gas prices. "So that will keep us from going too far away", added Miller. But a constellation of factors have contributed to the spike, including rising oil prices, geopolitical developments and the strong economy.

AAA is expecting more than 40 million travelers nationwide, a 5 percent increase from last years total.

"Hardworking Americans who contribute to the world's largest economy deserve safe, reliable and efficient transportation", Frelinghuysen said at a hearing. In addition, drivers should stay alert, avoid distracted driving, use alternate routes when possible, obey the speed limit and take precautions to ensure safety.

"Many drivers begin to travel the Thursday before Memorial Day, and the actual holiday is when many drivers choose to return home".

Check your vehicle: AAA recommends getting your battery tested, looking for engine coolant leaks and checking tire condition before leaving to prevent breakdowns on the road. "I'm not sure how much it would cost me to fill it". More weight means more gas.

"Drivers are going to pay a little bit more, but the most interesting thing is even though drivers are going to have to pay more at the pump this Memorial Day, we're expecting a five percent increase in the number of people that are going to be driving on the roads in Texas". "With the gas prices the way they are, really why would you want to", said Bradford resident Scott Stover, "we live in a handsome area, we will barbecue and spend time with family".

If you want to save every penny on gas, AAA suggests turning off your vehicle and going inside a restaurant, instead of waiting in the drive-thru line.
