OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The number of Oklahomans expected to travel 50 or more miles from home for the Thanksgiving holiday is expected to increase this year.
AAA-Oklahoma says about 578,500 Oklahomans are expected to travel during the holiday weekend this year- a 1 percent increase over last year.
The holiday weekend is considered to be Wednesday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 25.
Despite the overall increase - AAA-Oklahoma says the number of Oklahomans traveling by air is expected to decline by 1.2 percent to about 48,750. AAA also says the average distance traveled from home is expected to drop from 706 miles in 2011 to 588 miles this year.
AAA's projections are based on a joint analysis of travel trends with Colorado-based IHS Global Insight.
