PORTLAND, Maine - AAA says 43.4 million Americans are expected to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday this year. That's down slightly from last year.

“While the economy continues to improve, the sluggish pace of the recovery is creating uncertainty in the minds of some would-be travelers,” AAA Northern New England spokesman Pat Moody said.

AAA says majority of travelers will be traveling by automobile. Travelers will find gas prices to be the lowest in three years this year.

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be the busiest single day of travel with 37% of travelers departing for trips November 27.
