AAA estimates more than 36 million of us hit the road over the Memorial Day weekend.  That’s nearly a five percent increase from last year at the same time. And, that’s in spite of higher prices for gas at the pump. Higher gas prices may not keep people off the roads as this vacation season kicks off, but consumers may consider shorter trips, or other cost savings while they’re on vacation.
