With Christmas and New Years just around the corner, AAA released its travel forecast for the end of the year holiday season. According to the report, more people will be traveling this year.
AAA projects 98.6 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the year-end holiday period, which spans from Dec. 23rd to Jan. 4th. That is an increase of four percent from the 94.8 million who traveled last year.
About 91 percent of people will reach their holiday destination by driving, and 6 percent will fly, according to AAA. The good news for people taking road trips is that Christmas Day gas prices are expected to be the lowest since 2008.
