AAA: Highest Thanksgiving Travel for 2017 season

17 Ноября 2017, 12:26 | Cedric Leonard

“Busiest holiday season:” Over 50 million Americans expected to travel this Thanksgiving

AAA: More than 1.6 million Michiganders will celebrate Thanksgiving with holiday getaway

But AAA's Tamara Johnson also says next Tuesday afternoon is one of the worst times to begin Thanksgiving travel by auto. Prices were at $2.56 a gallon on Wednesday, about 10 percent above a year ago, AAA said.

According to AAA, of those traveling to see family and friends during Thanksgiving, about 2.3 million Floridians will get there via road trip.

A new report by Hertz shows that Orlando International Airport will be among the busiest airport pick-up locations for rental cars.

High gas prices are not expected to deter Americans from hitting the road this Thanksgiving. Today, the average is $2.58, but AAA expects the price will still be lower than what drivers were paying earlier this month.

On Thursday, the average price for regular stood at $2.52 per gallon statewide, up from $2.14 a year ago. "Most people have already made their travel plans, and will not cancel them for moderate shifts in gas prices". "A strong economy and labor market are generating rising incomes and higher consumer confidence".

This also marks the eighth consecutive year of growth for Thanksgiving travel in MI as more people take to the nation's roads, skies, rails and waterways. At $157, on average, that is a 23 percent fare drop year-over-year. All passengers should wear their seatbelts; according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 301 vehicle occupants died in traffic crashes during Thanksgiving weekend in 2015; about 50 percent of those killed weren't wearing seat belts at the time.

Air travel is expected to see the biggest year-over-year increase, at 5 per cent, with about 4 million travellers expected to pass through USA airports over the holiday period. "These factors are fueling a confident consumer, who is expected to maintain a high level of spending that should drive an increase in holiday travel".
