Nearly 2 million more travelers than last year are celebrating with Fourth of July getaways
|LEXINGTON, Ky. — Nearly 49 million Americans will celebrate the red, white and blue with an Independence Day getaway this year—more than ever recorded since AAA began tracking holiday travel data in 2000.|
Overall travel volume for the holiday is expected to rise 4.1 percent over last year, with an additional 1.9 million people planning road trips and other vacations to celebrate America’s birthday. For the record-high 41.4 million Americans who will travel by automobile this Independence Day, drivers could face delays as much as four times a normal commute, according to global mobility analytics company INRIX, in collaboration with AAA. Wednesday, July 3, is expected to be the worst day on the roads.
In addition to lower gas prices compared to last summer, broader economic indicators remain strong. Low unemployment, robust consumer spending and rising disposable incomes in many areas of the country are all spurring more consumers to invest their hard-earned money in travel this summer.
“As Independence Day approaches, it’s time for the much-loved family road trip and this year will be one for the record books, with more Americans than ever planning vacations,” said Lori Weaver Hawkins, public and government affairs manager, AAA Blue Grass. “This holiday builds on Memorial Day’s strong travel demand, and with school now out, Kentucky families are eager to travel.”
