Fourth of July biggest travel weekend of year
Motorists will be able to focus more on red, white and blue for Independence day weekend, and less on green. Gas prices have dropped 17 cents in Nevada since last month. AAA estimates that more than 360,000 Nevadans will travel 50 miles or more this Fourth of July holiday weekend. Nearly 300,000 people are expected to travel by car. Independence Day travel is the busiest summer holiday, and it can be the deadliest on the highways. AAA is offering their Tipsy Tow Program for drinking drivers from 6 p.m. July 4 to 6 a.m. July 5. Members and non-members alike can call 1 (800) 222-4357 for a free tow of up to seven miles.
