HUNTINGTON — Inflation is not going to stop many families from traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday, according to AAA.

AAA predicts 54.6 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home this Thanksgiving. This is a 1.5% increase over 2021 and 98% of pre-pandemic volumes. This year is projected to be the third busiest for Thanksgiving travel since AAA started tracking in 2000.
