Many people are expected to travel this weekend and with slippery spots still on the roads law enforcement is reminding drivers to be careful.

According to the Triple-A, 93.3 million Americans are expected to hit the road traveling 50 miles or more. That's more than a one-and-a-half percent increase over last year.

As far as gas prices go, they're starting to go up again after falling below $3 a gallon at many stations. Log onto to find the lowest advertised prices.

Air travel is improving after the major winter storm that moved across the country this week. According to, by mid-morning Saturday there were just 69 cancellations nationwide, a big improvement since Thursday when more than 1,400 flights were canceled due to the weather.
