Independence Day travel to break record

NEW YORK (AP) — A record 43 million Americans are expected to travel this Independence Day weekend, and AAA says most of them will be driving.

Lower gas prices, strong consumer confidence and a generally healthy domestic economy have led more families to take trips this summer.

AAA estimates that U.S. drivers have saved a total of about $20 billion on gasoline so far this year compared to the same period last year.
