As many of you may know, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after are the busiest travel days in terms of the number of people flying in the United States. Many of us felt this experience, not only at the airport, but also with our wallet. The price of airfare was almost a hundred dollars lower traveling on Tuesday and Saturday each way instead. Considering I was flying between Seattle and Oakland, that’s big difference. However, if you account all modes of transportation, Thanksgiving day is actually to peak travel day, as you can see here. It turns out that most people drive to get to their Thanksgiving destination (and quite a long distance too).
