National Holiday in Korea

Liberation Day is celebrated on 15th of August every year in South Korea. However, since this year’s Liberation Day falls on the weekend, the South Korean government has issued an official “substitute holiday” on 16th of August, Monday. Therefore the workers in South Korea received the right to fully enjoy their holiday.

Given the three consecutive days of long weekend, it is a perfect time for people to visit their families and friends back in their hometown. During one of these important holidays, the rest stops are bustling with people who are stopping by to fill their needs and refuel their cars.

Below graph from DFRC’s crowd analytic shows the count number of people who are passing by the gas station.

On the other hand, EV charging station had 119% of population increase on Saturday and 106% increase on Sunday.
