Here's The Worst Time To Travel For Fourth Of July!

Despite gas prices hovering toward $3 a gallon, this Fourth of July is expected to be the busiest ever! The worst time to travel in Massachusetts is 3:30-6:30 this afternoon.

If you travel during that time, you can expect it to take nearly twice as long to get where you are going. About 1.25 million people will be traveling at least 50 miles in Massachusetts for the Fourth of July!
