Going on a trip..oil change or not?

k, i'm going out of town for the weekend..its about 300 miles one way...my car has 4888 miles on it right now so the first 5000 mile oil change is almost due...would it be okay for me to wait until i get back to change the oil? or should i change it now?

personally, i would change it...but i really dont know about how "new" cars work.
