Roadways will be pretty busy this week as more than 40 million people are expected to travel for thanksgiving. According to AAA, 80% of travelers will be driving to their destination. The highest since 2007. They're also reporting gas prices are the lowest they've been for Thanksgiving in five years. This time last year--- the average price of gas in Florida was $3.46 a gallon. It's now $2.80. Some say that savings goes a long way. "It's gonna save us a little bit of money because we're gonna have to stay at a hotel for a couple nights up here. So uhm, you know we have a small car for gas mileage savings, but i think, you know, every 10 - 20 cents makes a big difference on a long trip," said Crystal River resident Daniel Kampschroer. He is traveling to Fort Walton Beach and expects to be there Wednesday night.
