A busy time for 4th of July weekend travel.

FOX's Rich Denison reports: 

Prepare to share the roads, rails and TSA checkpoints with a lot of people during the upcoming 4th of July weekend...

Triple A says it expects more than 44 million people will travel at least 50 miles from home during the weekend starting Friday June 30th and ending the night of July 4th.

The majority will travel by car, but airline travel is expected to be up for the eighth straight year...

The auto club says cheaper gas prices, lower air fares and less expensive car rentals contributing to the large travel numbers.
