    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Drivers are will be breaking records this holiday weekend at the pump and on the road.
     
    According to AAA, customers have seen the most number of days where gas cost more than $3 a gallon.
                                   
    For the third year in a row, the national average will be within a penny or two of $3.64 per gallon.

    Those prices are forcing some people to find other ways to travel.
     
    "You start to think, 'I could get on the train and it's more comfortable, and I don't have to worry about the gas prices and it's all included one time you don't have to worry about it,'” said one customer.
     
    Experts said more than 35 million people to be traveling on road this weekend, making it a little busier than last year.
