High gas prices don’t appear to affect Shore traffic

    And so it begins. Traffic was piling up on the road into Ocean City, N.J., even before noon today. And our reporter Tom MacDonald is tasked with sitting in it. (Happy Friday, Tom!)

    Tom’s working on a story for us about how rising gas prices affect holiday weekend travel. If this line of traffic is any indication, the answer is pretty clear: Shore or bust. More from Tom later.
