More Thanksgiving Travelers Expected

Posted: Updated:

If you're driving to grandma's house on Thanksgiving, you'll have plenty of company.

Holiday travel will be up a little for the 4th year in a row.

Almost 47 million Americans will be taking a trip of more than 50 miles.

90% of those will be driving.

Those totals include 578,000 Oklahomans.

The national average for gas prices has dropped 35 cents a gallon over the last month.

AAA expects that trend to continue through the holiday.
