AAA Predicts Thanksgiving Travel To Be Up 13%

Tuesday, November 16th, 2021 -- 9:25 AM


Gas prices continue to go up nationwide with no expectation to go down before Thanksgiving.  

AAA predicts 53.4 million Americans will travel for Thanksgiving. It’s not exactly pre-pandemic levels like in 2019, but it’s about 13% more than last year.   Nick Jarmusz, a Public Information Officer with AAA says they are expecting about 1.1 million Wisconsin residents to be traveling.  

Just like the national data, automobile travel dominates the holiday forecast for Wisconsin with 954,000 people choosing to drive.   Jarmusz said the national price average for gas is at $3.41 per gallon. In Wisconsin, the average is $3.12.
