Wisconsin AAA projects fewer Thanksgiving holiday travelers

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Fewer Wisconsinites will be heading home for mom's or grandma's Thanksgiving turkey. 

The AAA projects that 873,000 people will make one-way trips of at least 50 miles in the Badger State. That's down one-and-a-half percent from a year ago. 

Gail Weinholzer of the Wisconsin AAA says many folks are still not too confident about the economy -- and their conservative natures especially show around the holidays, as far as traveling goes. 

About 63,000 of the Wisconsin travelers are expected to fly someplace. The rest will pay much lower gas prices than last Thanksgiving. 

Tuesday's statewide average for regular unleaded is $3.16 a gallon. That's an almost negligible three-tenths of a cent increase from Monday, but it's almost a quarter cheaper per gallon than last year's Turkey Day.
