Thanksgiving travel
AAA projects 51 million Americans will travel this Thanksgiving; a 3.3 percent increase over last year. And that number will include 1.6 million Tennesseans.Tennesseans make up 1.6 million of those travelers, the most since 2005. “Thanksgiving kicks off the start of what will likely become the busiest holiday season in more than a decade,” says Vicky Evans of AAA. “A strong economy and labor market are generating rising incomes and higher consumer confidence. These factors should help fuel consumer spending and generate a strong finish for the travel industry this year.” Gas Prices in Tennessee averaged $1.94 on Thanksgiving last year but this year are likely to be the highest since 2014. Gas prices surged earlier this month. The state average rose 8 cents in 10 days, currently averaging $2.33, but AAA says the price should drop a little before Thanksgiving.
