A record number of Americans will kick off the summer with a road trip this Memorial Day Weekend.
AAA predicted 43 million Americans will head out of town for the long weekend. The majority are expected to drive to their weekend getaway.
Despite rising gas prices, 37.6 million Americans will load up their cars to reach their destination, according to AAA.
AAA data shows that number is up 3.5-percent from the year prior and the most on record for this holiday.
Experts want to remind travelers to pack their patience because drivers will likely experience delays and congestion on the road.
