SACRAMENTO --

This holiday weekend, AAA projects 42 million Americans will be packing up, filling u, and heading out of town on a 50+ mile trip.

At $2.99 per gallon, the Arco gas station near Discovery Park has been tabbed by Gasbuddy.com as one of the cheapest places to get gas.

Other travelers opting out of gas prices altogether filled the Amtrak station downtown Friday.

But, even the buses were delayed this afternoon, as travelers waited for a late bus from Stockton.

A DUI checkpoint will be setup Friday night near El Camino Avenue and Marysville Blvd.​
