Record Memorial Day weekend travel expected


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) — The American Automobile Association (AAA) predicts this will be the busiest Memorial Day weekend since 2005.

Paying at the pump isn’t as painful as years past.

The national average is $2.31 a gallon which is the lowest it’s been since 2011.

In South Carolina, the average is even lower.

The prices tend to be a big incentive for holiday travelers.

“You can’t even get in here and I-85 is a parking lot right now,” said Katie Savage as she pumped gas at a QuikTrip in Greer.

While some are hitting the highways, others are taking to the skies.

While checking out crowds at GSP Airport, we spotted a familiar face.

Lead singer and last surviving member of The Temptations, Dennis Edwards, was waiting for his luggage.

“The lines were just awful,” Edwards said.

Temptations Review has a show this weekend in Seneca.
