More Oklahomans Expected To Travel For Holiday

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - More Oklahomans are expected to travel over the Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend.

According to AAA Oklahoma, 572,800 Oklahomans are projected to take a trip next week, a 5.1 percent increase from the estimated 545,000 travelers for Thanksgiving Day 2010. About 90 percent of the travel will be done by motor vehicle.

Officials expect a 2.8 percent increase in the number of Oklahomans flying to their destination.
