Memorial Day travel in Florida is expected to rise by 3 percent, twice the national average, which could help tourism revenues and boost the state’s battered economy. Lower gas prices suggest there will be 1.5 percent rise nationwide, according to AAA Auto Club South. About 32 million people nationwide, including 1.6 million in Florida, are projected to travel during the holiday weekend, AAA said, indicating some signs of recovery in tourism and consumer spending.
