Triple A predicts increase in holiday travel
Triple A says just over 92 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more during the year end holiday...up about three percent from last year.
We are coming up on the longest holiday period of the year.
Van Curen: As opposed to those three-day weekends or in Thanksgiving's case, a four-day weekend, this spans from December 23rd to January 2nd.
And, AAA’s Windy Van Curen says, spending will be up a bit this year.
Van Curen: You're gonna have spending up about 3.5 percent more than last year, most people spending close to $700. It's gonna be about $694 that the average family is gonna spend.
AAA says the economy is a bit better than 2009 and they predict the fifth consecutive holiday increase this year.
