A record number of people are set to head out of town for the Fourth of July holiday.

With more Americans expected to drive or fly this year than ever before, travelers are warned to expect the worst on what AAA is calling “Terrible Tuesday.”

Gas prices are up 62 cents compared to this time last year, it’s the most expensive Fourth of July holiday price in four years.

In New Mexico gas is at an average of 2.87, which is a national average.

There are apps like Gas Buddy, Gas Guru, Google maps and Waze that can help drivers find cheaper gas.
