1.4M Thanksgiving travelers expected to fill Virginia highways

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

Southern California residents will travel in greater numbers for the Thanksgiving holiday this year than at any time since Thanksgiving 2007, with 3.87 million residents expected to get away for the long weekend - a 3.6 percent increase over last year's 3.74 million travelers, the Automobile Club of Southern California said Thursday. Prices were at $2.56 a gallon on Wednesday, about 10 percent above a year ago, AAA said.

AAA expects almost 51 million Americans to hit the road for Thanksgiving travel next week, the highest volume for Turkey Day travel in a dozen years.

This would despite the fact that gas prices are the highest since Thanksgiving 2014.

A new report by Hertz shows that Orlando International Airport will be among the busiest airport pick-up locations for rental cars.

Some 45.5 million United States road-trippers will set off to grandma's house and other destinations during the Thanksgiving holiday, the highest volume seen nationwide since 2005.

Idaho's current average price for regular gasoline is $2.65.

AAA defines the Thanksgiving holiday travel period as November 22 to November 26.

"Most people have already made their travel plans, and will not cancel them for moderate shifts in gas prices", Jenkins said. The national average is at $2.54 - a full 37 cents higher than previous year, according to AAA.

In Florida, 190,720 are expected to take a flight, a 4.5 percent over past year, AAA said.

Holiday high: auto rental daily rates will hit a five-year holiday high at $70/day, which may be due to an increase in domestic demand and cost of newer vehicles.

Nationwide, Thanksgiving travel is expected to grow by 3.3 percent this year - an increase that AAA says is driven by growing consumer confidence. Nationally, Anaheim, site of the Disneyland Resort, is expected to be the second most popular Thanksgiving destination, according to the AAA. "These factors are fueling a confident consumer, who is expected to maintain a high level of spending that should drive an increase in holiday travel".
