North Texas gears up for the weekend on vacation – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

There were no reports of major cancellations or delays at Love Field Airport or DFW on Saturday.

Inside Love Field, it was a rare sight to see during the holiday weekend.

“It was easy. It didn’t matter much. It seems that this airport is very easy to get in and out,” said traveler Jessica Aldridge.

Families have come and gone without any confusion about travel.

I forgot that today is the Fourth of July. So no, I didn’t expect it to be so empty there,” said traveler Patrick Fuston.

He, his wife and children are heading to a family reunion in Tennessee.

Rachel Garner and her mom are flying home to Atlanta.

“My family called me earlier and said there might be bad weather in Atlanta, so I’m expecting probably an airport delay or travel time delay, and we’re just anticipating that and being patient,” Garner. said.

As for travelers hitting the road, AAA Texas’ Daniel Armbruster said there’s good news on gas prices.

“They keep falling. In fact, overnight here at DFW, we have lost an average of about four cents per night. Today it costs $4.48. But then again, these are the most expensive gas prices we have ever paid for the Fourth of July,” said Daniel Armbruster, spokesman for AAA Texas.

Families are back on the road and AAA reports that driving this holiday weekend has surpassed the 2019 record.

Even with gas prices near record highs, experts say travel demand is likely to pick up even after the holiday – all the way through Labor Day.
