Shipping Christmas packages could get more costly

It was the busiest day for those working over at UPS Monday.

We found a crowd lining up to send their loved ones gifts this week before Christmas.

Owner Donnie Lovvorn says the last chance to get your package to its destination before Sunday is to ship it by air Friday and pay for next day delivery, which can get costly.

"It could be three or four times as much as going ground when you go air because unfortunately you're paying for jet fuel and the time to get it there and speed," says Lovvorn.

To avoid a hefty price tag, he suggests ground shipping and doing that as soon as possible.
