Americans are planning to hit the road for shorter trips this Memorial Day weekend.

Half a million more people will travel by road or air this year over last, but gas prices will keep them closer to home.

Most will be driving, according to AAA's annual Memorial Day Holiday Weekend Travel Forecast.

The auto club also finds the majority of road-trippers will cut back on food and entertainment spending to save cash.
