Holiday travel in Michigan expected to be up slightly this Christmas season

by

DEARBORN, MI (WTVB) AAA Michigan reports that holiday travel will be up just slightly this year in Michigan, and up about 1.6% nationwide.   Nancy Cain says for the most part, the fact that the fiscal cliff is looming appears to be having little effect.

She says 2.9 million Michiganders will travel 50 miles or more during the 11-day holiday period, and while a few are headed for vacation destinations, most are headed home for the holidays.

During the 11-day holiday travel period, Americans plan to travel an average 760 miles roundtrip.   Median spending per household is expected to be $759, up from $718. Transportation costs represent about 29 cents of every travel dollar.
