Holiday Travel

Submitted By: K2 News Desk,

AAA says 43.4 million Americans are traveling 50 miles from home over this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Today is the busiest travel day of the year. But, the overall number is still down 1.5% from last year. The auto club attributes the decrease to a still sluggish national economy, and uncertainty about the future. The average family will also spend about $465 on their Thanksgiving trip, which is also down about 7% from last year. The good news is the average price of gas is the lowest in three years.
