The traffic in the Lowcountry seems pretty calm, after the rough two weeks we've had.

Before you get on the road for your Memorial Day destination, don't forget to gas up.

According to Triple A, 36-million people will be hitting the roadways across the country, this weekend.

Many are also paying more at the pump, according to Triple A gas is up 31% compared to prices during Memorial Day Weekend 2017.

Experts say several factors are in play, including Subtropical Storm Alberto in the Gulf Coast and sanctions against Iran.

Gas around the Lowcountry averages out to $2.69/gallon.
