Triple A says a record number of people will be hitting the road and taking to the skies this winter.

 

Marie Dodds with Triple A Oregon has those details.

 

"It is a very busy yearend travel time," she says. "Whether you're driving or flying, travel is up. Triple A is projecting 98.6 million Americans will travel 30 miles or more, and that's about 31 percent of the population. That's up 4 percent from last year."

 

The vast majority will drive. About 91 percent of travelers plan to reach their destinations by car.

 

Lower gas prices are also fueling more travel this holiday.
