Christmas, New Year’s travel busiest in 6 years
NEW YORK – This Christmas travel season could be the busiest in six years, with AAA predicting that 93.3 million Americans will hit the road. That’s 1.6 percent more than last year and just 400,000 people shy of the 2006 record.
More cars will crowd the highways than ever before, largely because finding a seat on a plane at a desirable price has gotten more difficult. AAA says a record 84.4 million people will drive at least 50 miles between Dec. 22 and Jan. 1.
One in four Americans will be driving long distances for Christmas and New Year’s. So expect plenty of traffic jams and overflowing toll plazas.
