There’s no place like home for the holidays, unless of course you’re traveling for them. An article in Newser said,
The AAA travel group says that 100.5 million people, or about one-third of the U.S. population, will be traveling over the holidays. That number represents people who plan to venture at least 50 miles from home between December 23rd and January 3rd, and it is the first time that many people have said they’re traveling. Of them, 91% say they’ll travel by car, and just 5.7% plan to take a flight; the rest plan to take a cruise, bus, or train. In a press release, the AAA notes, “Rising incomes and low gas prices are helping to fill stockings this year, and more people than ever will choose to spend those savings on travel.”
I’m flying home to Ohio. I hope it’s a smooth trip.
