Record number of holiday travelers hit the roads, skies

NEW YORK — AAA predicts a record 112.5 million travelers hit the road this holiday season.

The 4 percent increase in holiday travel over last year could be, in part, because of gas prices. The nationwide average is $2.46 per gallon, 2 cents less than a year ago.

New York City made the top 10 list of popular travel destinations, but most other hot spots include warmer-climate areas like Orlando, Florida and Cancun.
