- Expect to see plenty of traffic out on the roads this Memorial Day weekend. But if there's a silver lining, traffic may be down slightly.
AAA estimates 627,000 people are expected to travel by road in Wisconsin this weekend. That's down about 1.6 percent from last year. One reason could be gas prices.
Statewide, they're averaging $3.93 a gallon.
That's 33 cents more than a month ago and 21 cents higher than last year. AAA says gas prices are higher here than the national average of $3.65 because several refineries in the Upper Midwest have been closed for maintenance.
You'll see the most company on state roads from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday and again Monday during the same hours.
