At least one Michigan State Police Lieutenant is seeing less holiday traffic then years past. While the official numbers and more concrete information has yet to be tallied the concern is high gas prices are to blame.
According to AAA of Michigan gas prices are about 65 percent higher for the holiday weekend then a year ago.
While they believe the travel numbers will hit levels not seen since 2001, there are several local stories of residents opting to stay close to home because of prices at the pump.
