Gas Prices Won't Hinder Travel

AAA says record gasoline prices don't look like they'll put a dent in Thanksgiving holiday travel.

The price of regular is back up over $3 a gallon. That's nearly
a dollar more than last year at a time when fuel is typically
cheaper. The travel agency says it expects nearly 39 million
Americans to be traveling 50 miles or more from home over the five
days beginning November 21st. Triple-A says that's up 1.6 percent
from last year.

Roughly 80 percent of those trips will be by car.

The Energy Department says motorists can expect to be paying
another dime a gallon for gas by December.
