Cheaper gas prices and improvements in the economy are spurring an increase in travel this Thanksgiving holiday.
That's according to travel projections from AAA.
Spokesperson Elizabeth Carey says the auto club projects 48.7 million Americans will travel, most of them by car.
"A lot of people are back at work, unemployment is low. Gas prices have been reasonable. We've seen a lot of people traveling throughout the year, and this Thanksgiving shouldn't be any different. We do expect a lot of travelers," she said.
