AAA says Thanksgiving Eve is the busiest travel day for drivers, when officials say more than 55 million people will hit the roads.
Officials say traveling should be busier this holiday season as gas prices see a $.29 decrease.
AAA says the prices are cheaper compared to the holiday weekend last year, with the national number at 35 cents less than in 2022.
When James Kannengieser made plans for a road trip over the Thanksgiving weekend, he knew it was going to be busy.
The Massachusetts resident says people will need to be patient when driving for the holidays this year.
"The traffic's a little stop-and-go. We've hit some standstills at times, but we're making the best of it. We have kids in the back seat playing some music," said Kannengieser.
Kannengieser said the journey can be tiring when traffic is backed up.
"When you're stuck in traffic, and you're not even moving, it gets a little tough."
Kannegieser says to make sure people arrive safely, they should make sure they’re well rested.
AAA says with more than 55 million Americans hitting the road over the next few days, many of them right here in the world's busiest traffic corridor, there'll be a lot of tempers tested.
