BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - AAA is expecting more than 4.6 million Californians will travel to celebrate the Independence holiday, this year.
According to AAA, more than 79 percent of those travelers will be making their trek by car instead of on a plane. That's up 1.5 percent from last year making seem as if the high gas prices aren't a problem for drivers this year.
"Gas prices are the highest for this holiday since 2008 but despite the prices consumers are still traveling," said Chere Smith with AAA.
AAA is also offering a free Tow Service to keep drunk driver from getting into their cars after enjoying the Fourth of July holiday.
"You don't even have to be a member to take part in the program because we want to make sure all the roads are safe for all drivers," Smith said.
AAA will be offering their Tipsy Tow service until midnight, tonight. You can contact 1 (800) 400-4AAA for service.
The first 7 miles are free, but anything after will be based on the cost of the tow truck. Drivers should be aware no passenger will be allowed in the tow truck.
