AAA is projecting that over 100 million Americans will take a trip 50 miles or more from home this holiday season, a 1.4% increase over last year. According to AAA, this is the seventh year in a row the number of holiday travelers has grown. AAA attributes the growth to improvement in employment, rising incomes and low prices, especially for gas. According to AAA, gas will likely fall below $2 per gallon by Christmas, with the national average standing at $2.01. Last year’s national average around this time was $2.56. Gas prices will likely be at their lowest since 2009 on New Year’s Day. Get the full story at Travel Weekly
