Moved 300 miles away, family is resentful

I'm 46 years old, children are out on their own, going to college, etc. My husband and I moved 300 miles away 3 years ago, our children love that they have a beautiful place to come to, to get away, but my family, sister and mother, brother-in-law, etc. are resentful. They only come to visit once a year, because they feel obligated, but expect me to go there most of the time, fuel is high and I have to pick and choose my trips, but they never fail to guilt me if I feel bad about missing an event, "well you're the one who moved away"! How do I deal with this, I am getting very depressed over this constant hammering of guilt, it's been 3 years already.???
