AAA last week forecasted that 48.7 million Americans will travel for the holiday, the busiest Thanksgiving period on U.S. roads and in the skies since 2007. AAA said that between Nov. 23 and 27, a full million more Americans will travel at least 50 miles from their home compared to last year's Thanksgiving holiday.
