Though prices aren't as high as before, it still impacts the way people plan out their holiday trips.
"It did figure into it but it was a lot less than what it's been in the past," said Tammy Stanislaw. "So it made it a lot easier for traveling."
Along with holiday meals and gifts, money spent on gas is now a major part of the holiday plan.

"Most of my family's out of town, so we have to go see them," explained Stephen. "But it won't be like it used to be where we take off and go out of our way to go anywhere."
