AAA says Tennessee is expecting heavy holiday traffic
A release from AAA said 1.3 million Tennesseans are expected to travel over Thanksgiving weekend. This predicted number is the second highest on record, with an expected 31,000 more holiday travelers than last year. AAA predicts that 1.25 million people will travel by car, and 39,676 by air. The release also predicts that gas prices will remain low through the holiday season—unless oil prices suddenly spike. Right now, Tennessee residents are paying an average price of $2.66. Last Thanksgiving gasoline was $3.16.
