Almost Four Million Texans Will Travel for Thanksgiving
Pack some soothing, stress-relieving eucalyptus lotion along with the green bean casserole this week.
There will be more people on the road than during any of the last nine Thanksgivings, according to AAA.
AAA says 48.7 million Americans will travel for Thanksgiving, so if your travel plans involve airports and take you to other states, you'll see a crowd along the way.
There are 3.9 million people expected to travel in Texas, and they'll move 50 miles or more from home. And the vast majority of them are traveling by car. Maybe it's because airline tickets are up about 21 percent this year. Yikes.
Gas prices are around $1.91 in Texas, while the rest of the country averages $2.16. We have more money to spend in that magical jellied cranberry sauce it appears.
They're saying the busiest travel day will be Tuesday, and the lightest travel time will be Thanksgiving morning.
And then Friday, well, the congestion hits the mall parking lot and that's a whole 'nother test of patience behind the wheel. It's the most wonderful time of the year, right?
