Thanksgiving 2017 travel to be busiest in 12 years, AAA says

AAA: More than 1.6 million Michiganders will celebrate Thanksgiving with holiday getaway

More people will be traveling across the nation's midsection for Thanksgiving this year, including in Kansas. AAA says Orlando is America's most popular travel destination over the holiday, while Hertz says it is expected to be the busiest airport in the nation in terms of vehicle rentals. Menendez, who has been under indictment for 2½ years, has already raised more than $2.5 million this year.

Most travellers - about 90 per cent, or 45.5 million people - will be on the road; a 3.2 per cent increase in automobile traffic over last year's holiday, according to the pre-holiday analysis.That's despite a higher national average for petrol prices over last year. It was higher at $2.56 a gallon a month ago, but lower at $2.18 a gallon previous year at Thanksgiving. Many Green Bay Packers fans may also be traveling to Pittsburgh, to see the team take on the Steelers.

Idaho's current average price for regular gasoline is $2.65. Although Idaho gas prices have been among the highest in the country in recent years, a nine-cent increase over the past month brings the USA average to within a dime of Idaho pump prices.

Road trip ready: 89 percent of all travelers - 45.5 million - are planning a Thanksgiving road trip, an increase of 3.2 percent over past year. "Oil prices reached 2-year highs last week, causing the sudden jump at the pump". "Nationwide, travel demand is surprisingly strong this fall, which is reducing fuel inventory and putting upward pressure on gas prices".

The Thanksgiving holiday travel period is defined as Wednesday, Nov. 22, through Sunday, Nov. 26. "A strong economy and labor market are generating rising incomes and higher consumer confidence".

And vehicle rentals are averaging $70 per day, 34 percent above previous year and the highest rate for a Thanksgiving weekend since 2013.

Two Florida cities - Orlando and Fort Lauderdale - are expected to rank among the county's top 10 Thanksgiving destinations, AAA said.
