Many drivers in Eastern Kentucky say it's hard to resist those extra trips these days, with gas much cheaper than it was just a couple of months ago.
Gas prices here in Hazard are near the $1.80. That is compared to the beginning of October, when gas was pushing $4.00 for a gallon of unleaded.
Drivers say they are hitting the road more often and police are taking notice.
"I'm driving a lot. A lot more than last year and back in July," said Walt Stidham.
"We believe that those two things coincided. we had noticed an increase in traffic when we saw a decrease in gas prices," said Trooper Tony Watts.
And because of that, state police are seeing more and more accidents in our area.
They say they best way to avoid a crash is to slow down and give yourself more time to get to your destination.
