Those traveling this holiday weekend should be happy about the prices at the pump. Gas prices are down.
Last year gas was $3.81 a gallon. The national average today is $3.67. Gas prices in Lexington are even cheaper, averaging about $3.49 a gallon.
A survey of travelers found 53 percent saying pump prices would not impact their travel plans.
Of the remaining 47 percent who say gas prices will have an impact on their weekend travels, nine percent said they were planning a shorter trip, while about a third said they would economize in other areas -- such as staying at a lower priced hotel or staying with relatives.
