If you’re traveling this Thanksgiving, chances are you’re traveling by car or airplane. This year, AAA has predicted that this will be the second busiest Thanksgiving travel season since the company began tracking the data in 2000, as more than 55 million Americans are believed to be traveling. This is a cool 1.6 million more than last year.

AAA also expects that the busiest times on interstates, highways, and air, will be Wednesday, and more specifically Wednesday evening, as Americans will be getting off work and heading off to see their family and friends.

With this increased traffic, it is also believed that the average travel time in some places will be up to 350% longer than normal. It is also believed that the most congested places of travel, will be Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta. 

The company also predicts that the average price of gasoline nationwide, should be about $2.57 a gallon. 

From all of us at TalonOnline and Shadows Yearbook, have a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your time with family and friends, and we will see you on Monday, December 2.
