While the "wait-and-see" travel trend continues, AAA says we can expect a decrease in people traveling for thanksgiving this year.
AAA is projecting a 9 percent drop in people traveling, down from the 2.3 million that traveled in 2019. Although a decrease in travel, there still will be many people on the roadway the whole week. A AAA manager says, we can expect a majority to travel by car because it creates a flexible plan and gas prices are lower than they've been in 15 years. The pandemic definitely has a role to play in the travel and we might see even less if more restrictions are in place.
