Total Travelers: Approximately 1,056,000 Wisconsinites will travel 50 miles or more; an increase of almost 35,000 people (3.4%) over past year.

"If you look at this time past year, for the state of Texas, the price is 34 cents higher and the reason for that analysts say it's because we're seeing higher demand than usual this fall", AAA spokesperson Daniel Armbruster said.

If you plan to travel to see loved ones for Thanksgiving, expect to share the roads with quite a few folks. The Thanksgiving travel period is defined as Wednesday, Nov. 22, to Sunday, Nov. 26. The organization said a strengthening economy and consumer confidence have prompted Americans to be willing to spend more on travel. "These factors should help fuel consumer spending and generate a strong finish for the travel industry this year".

US motorists will take 45.5 million trips this holiday, a 1.5 percent increase over past year and also the most since 2005, even though gas prices are at their highest since 2014, AAA said.

Most Maryland travelers - 91 percent, or 967,100 - are expected to drive to their destinations for Thanksgiving, according to AAA. The numbers have been increasing every year since.

A new study from Triple-A Arizona says that drivers will be paying the highest Thanksgiving gas prices since 2015.




"Thanksgiving kicks off the start of what will likely become the busiest holiday season in more than a decade", said Vicky Evans, Assistant Vice President, Travel Sales Development, AAA - The Auto Club Group.

Motorists should see some relief at the pump before the holiday.

Thanksgiving travel has steadily rebounded from the post-recession low in 2008, AAA said.

Idaho's current average price for regular gasoline is $2.65. "Our projection is there will be a 5.3 percent increase in boardings". The top five destinations for Southern California travelers, according to a survey of the Auto Club's Travel agents, are, in this order, San Francisco, San Diego, Anaheim, the Grand Canyon, and Santa Barbara. The London-based business information provider teamed with AAA in 2009 to jointly analyze travel trends during major holidays.

Of course, saving money is key when traveling during the holidays.
