LOUISIANA (FOX44) - As you head out the door this holiday weekend, bad news when it comes to the gas pump.
Gas buddy.com is reporting the average price for gas in Louisiana is three dollars thirty nine cents a gallon.

Compare that to last year's average, two dollars fifty eight cents and it makes you want to stay home.

In fact , AAA says they're expecting about a million people to do just that because of the gas prices.

Across the country, just under 40 million people are expected to hit the roads.

Here in Louisiana, state and local police say they'll be out all weekend looking for speeders, and drunk drivers.
