REDDING, Calif. - Millions of people are expected to hit the road during Memorial Day Weekend, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. 

According to a report by AAA, the vast majority of travelers - more than 37 million - will take the roads this weekend, driving at least 50 miles from home. 

Travelers said high-fuel costs aren't keeping people home, even though gas prices have gone up more than 30 cents in the last two months.
