HARRISONBURG -- A lot of cars from a lot of different places will drive through the Valley for Memorial Day weekend.

AAA Mid-Atlantic projected a little more than one million Virginians will travel this weekend. That's a lot of cars on the road, but it's still less than last year. AAA attributes that to families' tighter budgets.

Ron Hale and his family are traveled from Dallas, Tx to Washington D.C. He and his family took steps to save money along the way and noticed that gas prices are cheaper here in Virginia.

“It seems like it's gotten lower, the further north and east we've come. It's lower than Texas right now. We brought a bunch of snacks, so we don't have to stop and eat as much,” said Hale.

Gas prices in Virginia are nearly a quarter cheaper than the national average.
