(CNN) – You can expect slightly lower gas prices for Memorial Day Weekend than last year.

The national average for a gallon of gas is $2.85.

That’s about ten cents lower than a year ago. Some drivers are paying more though, like California where the statewide average is $4.03 a gallon of regular.

You’ll probably see more traffic too.AAA estimates a record of 37.6 million people will be on the roads this Holiday Weekend.

That’s up 3.5% from last year.

Reasons for the jump include consumer confidence and low unemployment.
