AAA says 50.9 million Americans to travel — THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY

Thousands of drivers are expected to hit the roads on Tuesday ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

A report issued Monday said 1.16 million Tennesseans plan to travel 50 miles or more by automobile later this week and will be in traffic amongst the 50.9 million Americans who have made plans.

"Some of the lowest prices will be in areas where multiple gas stations are within close proximity of each other, leading to higher competition", Jenkins said. AAA predicts consumers will pay the cheapest average airfare since 2013.

Gas prices are also at their highest since 2014.

"Road trips will cost more, however", the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported. The Maine Turnpike Authority is predicting traffic volume will top last year's record-breaking 1 million transactions by about 2 percent, or an extra 20,000 tolls paid.

The Alabama Department of Transportation announced there would be no temporary lane closures during the Thanksgiving travel period from noon Wednesday through midnight Sunday. - Chris McGinnis, founder of the TravelSkills blog, suggests booking hotels around office parks, which tend to be very quiet and offer great rates because there are few business travelers during the holidays.

Finally, to be sure that you and your family don't get stuffed on busy highways on your way to grandmother's house, as you drive safely, keep a careful watch for drivers who don't.

Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority, which operates the Downeaster, is projecting near-capacity travel on all trains over the holiday week, Executive Director Patricia Quinn said. Florida and parts of Georgia and South Carolina will see participation for most of Thursday and Friday. "I'm coming back on Wednesday and I'm scared it's going to be hectic coming in so we'll see", Jones said.

Travelers should arrive two hours early to avoid hangups in TSA security lines.

Some holiday travelers are already hitting the roads. "We could see drops for both Thanksgiving and Christmas".

"Before they pack their bags, pack their children, and pack their parents please make sure your car is road ready by checking your battery, your tires, make sure you pack an emergency road kit", says Ragina Cooper Averella, manager for AAA Mid-Atlantic. "We encourage everyone to travel safely and limit dangerous behaviors like distracted or impaired driving".
