NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - AAA expects Wednesday to be the busiest travel day over the Thanksgiving holiday with 43 million people traveling in one way or another.
The travel organization says most people will be hitting the road rather than flying this year. There's good news for drivers, gas prices have gone down in the last month and a half. The average price of gas in Virginia is $3.26. On a national level, gas is averaging around $3.40.
AAA says air travel has gone down a little bit from last year. Those who are traveling may notice airfares are lower.
WAVY.com had a crew at Norfolk International Airport early Wednesday morning. There were some long lines, but travelers were making it through the check out areas in a timely fashion.
