Car Travel to Rise 3.2% This Holiday Season

This current year about 85.7 million people will hit the road during the holidays, a 3.2% raise over previous year, according to AAA.

Folks who take their cars instead of fly are expected to make about 90% of all holiday travelers commuting more than 50 miles. Overall, the average holiday vacationer will travel about 1,052 miles round journey, up 33% from previous year, and it will cost them $694, which is a similar amount spent on the Thanksgiving holiday, AAA says. AAA defines the holiday period as between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2.
