DEARBORN, Mich. — AAA projects that more than 1.7 million people from Michigan will travel this month for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The auto club released its annual forecast on Thursday for people travelling 50 miles (80 kilometres) or more, saying that’s up 5 per cent from last year. AAA says it would be the ninth consecutive year of growth for Thanksgiving travel in Michigan and it would be the most travellers since 2007.

The estimates say more than 1.5 million of the Michigan travellers plan to go by personal vehicle and AAA notes they’ll see relatively lower gas prices . Most others will travel by air or train.

AAA’s projections are based on economic forecasting by research firm IHS Markit. This year’s Thanksgiving holiday travel period is defined as Nov. 21 through Nov. 25.
