Holiday travel increases due to low gas prices
With gas prices at the second-cheapest it has been in nearly a decade, many travelers took to the roads during the holiday season.
The manager at the Mobil Station on Flatlands Avenue and 84th Street tells News 12 that things have been busy over the past few days, with a surge of residents fueling up before heading out to their holiday destinations.
Many residents News 12 spoke with said they they were staying home for the holidays and that they are relieved to see less congestion on city streets.
In addition to the low cost of fuel, driving was proven a smart choice for travelers after more than 3,000 flights were delayed Friday. More delays could impact travel as a winter storm was expected to hit the Rockies and plains this weekend.
