Holiday travel forecast

If you are planning to go somewhere for the long Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend, you may be in the minority. A national survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association and conducted by Morning Consult shows most Americans are still opting to stay home this holiday season with 61% of Americans not planning to travel for Thanksgiving.

The survey found that 29% of Americans are likely to travel for Thanksgiving and 33% are likely to travel for Christmas which is an increase from 21% and 24%, respectively, compared with last year. Those who do plan to travel over the holidays expect to drive, but rising gas prices may dampen those plans. Fifty-two percent of Americans say they plan to take fewer trips in the months ahead, and 53% plan to take shorter trips due to rising gas prices.
