Holiday Travel Up This Year

The holiday week is fast approaching and those planning on traveling over the holiday period will soon begin their trips.  AAA Auto Club is projecting 93.3 million Americans will go 50 miles or more from home during the year-end holidays, an increase of 1.6 percent over the people who traveled last year. Travel in the Rocky Mountain States over the holidays is expected to rise 2.2 percent from last year, according to research by Colorado-based IHS Global Insight and released Wednesday by AAA. The forecast predicts that 31.5 percent of mountain-states residents – including those in Wyoming will travel – most of them, however, will stay within the Rocky Mountain region.  AAA says the increases seen nationally bring holiday travel figures to within half a million of the decade high mark seen during the 2006/2007 season.
