NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Despite many feeling pain at the pump, more than 39 million people are expected to hit the roads to travel 50 miles or more from home this Memorial Day weekend, according to AAA. 

In fact, nearly 87% of Tennesseans traveling for Memorial Day plan to travel by vehicle, according to the AAA, a 4.1% increase from last year.
