AAA Thanksgiving Travel Report

Driving remains the most popular mode of travel for the Thanksgiving holiday with more than 89 percent of holiday travelers choosing road trips over other modes. AAA projects that 48.7 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home this Thanksgiving which is a jump in travelers compared to last year and the most travelers for Thanksgiving since 2007. “One million more Americans than last year will carve out time to visit with friends and family this Thanksgiving,” shares AAA CEO Marshall Doney. “Most will travel on the tried and true holiday road trip, thanks to gas prices that are holding at close to $2 per gallon.” Enjoy and travel safe this holiday weekend!
