AAA: Over 1.5 Million Michiganders to Travel for Thanksgiving Holiday


AAA is projecting over 1.5 million Michiganders will travel for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

According to AAA, this represents the most travelers since 2007 and is a two percent increase over last year. AAA says this year’s increase is spurred by improvements to the economy during the second half of the year, including rising wages, increased consumer spending and overall strength in consumer confidence.

Driving remains the most popular mode of travel for Thanksgiving and AAA says more than 90 percent of Michigan holiday travelers will drive this Thanksgiving. Gas prices also remain relatively low with prices averaging about $2.03 per gallon, down 14 cents from last year. Air travel is expected to decrease about two percent with about 111,000 travelers flying to their destinations. Travel by other modes of transportation – cruises, trains and buses – is expected to increase.

AAA defines the holiday travel period as Wednesday, November 23rd through Sunday, November 27th.
