The holiday unofficially marks the start of summer for many, and Triple-A says they anticipate a five percent increase in people traveling for the extended weekend.  The number of people anticipated to journey to different places is expected to be the highest number in over a dozen years.  Major roadways could see delays up to three times longer than normal.  

The increased travel comes even as gas prices continue to skyrocket.
