AAA Predicts Increase in Holiday Travel for 5th Straight Year

AAA projects nearly 2.7 million Virginians will travel 50 miles or more from home during the year-end holidays, an increase of 3.7 percent from one year ago. The year-end holiday travel period is defined as Thursday, December 23, 2010, to Sunday, January 2, 2011.

Although gas prices have dramatically increased this December, approximately 2.5 million Virginians, or close to 93 percent of those traveling, will rely on their automobile for transportation to their year-end holiday destinations. That represents a 3.8 percent percent increase from the over 2.4 million who drove last year.

More details are online at AAA Mid-Atlantic.
