Many Americans are hitting the road for the Fourth of July weekend, so will you be in good company when traveling on the nation's highways? And, what can you expect to pay at the pump?

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

Triple A projects that 42.3 million of us will pack our cars and travel 50 miles or more to celebrate Independence Day.

Cade: "A 4.9% increase from last year."


Says Triple A's Yolanda Cade. And a tie for a high set in 2007. Cade says don't let gas prices scare you from hitting the road either.

Cade: "Fuel prices are lower than this time, last year."

By about .44 cents nationally, with an average of $3.50 per gallon for cheap stuff. Money still remains a concern. Triple A reporting the median spending for the holiday weekend about $750 dollars, that's down 7% from this time last year.
