CNN– With COVID-19 cases down in much of the country, the travel boom experts have been predicting is here. A record number of people are driving and flying places.
Gas prices are going up, with Monday’s national average price for a gallon of gas at $2.90. According to AAA, that’s up one cent from last week. For comparison, one year ago the price was $1.78.
People are also taking to the skies. On Sunday, the Transportation Security Administration screened more than 1.6 million people across U.S. airports. That’s nearly ten times higher than a year ago.
The TSA is also preparing for an increase in travel during the summer months.
