AAA Reveals 2023 Thanksgiving Travel Forecast

Drivers can expect more traffic on highways as AAA predicts a 2.3% increase this Thanksgiving.

According to a report from AAA, more than 55.4 million Americans will be traveling this week, which is the third highest Thanksgiving forecast since 2000.

The report predicts that “Most Thanksgiving travelers will drive to their destinations. AAA projects 49.1 million Americans will get behind the wheel, an increase of 1.7% compared to 2022. Drivers could be paying less for gas than last Thanksgiving when the national average was $3.58. This year, the national average peaked in mid-August at $3.87 and has been coming down since, despite global tensions causing ripples through the oil market.”
