HOUSTON (AP) - An industry group expects 7.5 million Texans will hit the road for the end-of-the-year holidays.
AAA Texas on Monday predicted those travelers will go 50 miles or more from home, for the period starting Friday to Monday, Jan. 2, 2012. That would be a 2.6 percent increase from the same period last year.
Recent AAA travel surveys show auto travel will likely increase 3 percent, compared to a year ago. AAA Texas estimates about 6.9 million Texans plan to drive to their holiday destinations.
