AAA forecasts that travel for the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend will increase for the fourth consecutive year. That translates into 43.6-million total Thanksgiving holiday travelers; but, while automobile travel is expected to increase slightly beginning Wednesday, air travel may see a decline.
Those traveling by automobile in Florida this weekend will see good news at the pumps. Gasoline prices have steadily declined over the last few weeks to an average of $3.32 a gallon of regular today. And, if you're traveling from out of state from the north, and northeast you will find gasoline even cheaper along the way — North and South Caroline, Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee all are today reporting average gasoline prices lower than Florida.
If you are driving in Florida this weekend, it is important to note the traffic laws of the state, including the new "move-over" act, use of seat belts, child restraint laws and the increasing use of red light cameras by many communities.
