Millions expected to travel for July 4th holiday, according to AAA

A record-breaking 49-Million Americans are expected to travel this Independence Day.

According to AAA, that is nearly 2 million more travelers than last year.

41 million people plan to travel by car, while just less than 4 million by plane.

INRIX, a global mobility analytics company, predicts drivers could face delays as much as four times a normal commute, with Wednesday, July 3 being the worst day on the roads.
