On a National scale, about 112.5 travelers will ether drive, fly, or take the train during the holiday period which is 4.4 percent higher than last year.

Daniel Armbruster AAA Spokesman said in a statement,

With so many Texans and Americans on the road and in the air, it is important to pack your patience as many airports and freeways will be crowded during peak travel times.
