High gasoline prices aren't stopping people from hitting the road this three day weekend, and many of those eager travelers are coming here to Central Oregon. Triple A's Marie Dodds says their research shows the two hot spots for the holiday the Oregon coast and Central Oregon: “Central Oregon; that is always one of the favorite destinations for Memorial Day and most holidays. Of course you've got everything from Black Butte to Sunriver, hiking, golf, mountain biking, horse back riding, these are reasons why Central Oregon is such a popular destination.” Other very popular places are Crater Lake, and even Disneyland and sometime Hawaii for people who can stretch out their weekend by a few extra days. Triple A says 11% of the population will travel this weekend and on the west coast, travel is expected to be up by 1.6% compared to last year.  Most people, 88%, will travel by car.
