“Busiest holiday season:” Over 50 million Americans expected to travel this Thanksgiving
According to AAA, of those traveling to see family and friends during Thanksgiving, about 2.3 million Floridians will get there via road trip. This would be a 3.3 percent increase over past year, and be the highest number of travelers since 2005. It almost matches the nationwide jump of those leaving home for the holiday. "We have, in our region, which includes a couple other states, there are going to be 4.1 million people taking a Thanksgiving weekend trip, which is 50 miles or more from home". This also marks the eighth consecutive year of growth for Thanksgiving travel in MI as more people take to the nation's roads, skies, rails and waterways. 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.
High gas prices are not expected to deter Americans from hitting the road this Thanksgiving. "Oil prices reached 2-year highs last week, causing the sudden jump at the pump". It was higher at $2.56 a gallon a month ago, but lower at $2.18 a gallon past year at Thanksgiving.
"Overall, for the nation, we're looking at 51 million Americans that are planning on getting out for Thanksgiving", said Haugh.
IPhone X Users Report Annoying Earpiece 'Crackling' Sounds
Earlier this month the auto correct issue emerged when people updated their phones to version 11.1 of the iOS operating system. For reference, the current iPhone X has a 5.8-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus has a display size of 5.5 inches.
Idaho's current average price for regular gasoline is $2.65. Fortunately, oil prices are beginning to soften, thanks to growth in crude production and inventories; and wholesale gas prices are slipping due to high gasoline production. At $157, on average, that is a 23 percent fare drop year-over-year.
Two Florida cities - Orlando and Fort Lauderdale - are expected to rank among the county's top 10 Thanksgiving destinations, AAA said.
"Thanksgiving kicks off the start of what will likely become the busiest holiday season in more than a decade", said Vicky Evans, AAA's Assistant Vice President of Travel Sales Development. "These factors should help fuel consumer spending and generate a strong finish for the travel industry this year".
