AAA's Leisure Travel Index said more people are traveling despite an average 10-percent increase in airfares. AAA Texas is expecting a record-breaking 3.5 million Texans to travel this week for the Independence Day weekend. An estimated 48.9 million Americans are traveling 50 miles or more for the holiday weekend; 2.6 million of those will be Floridians. The remainder plan to use either trains, buses or cruise ships.

AAA predicts almost 49 million Americans are planning an Independence Day getaway this year. "It's typical to see increases at the pump ahead of the holiday, but we may see prices continue to jump throughout the month due to refinery interruptions on the East Coast, increasing demand and fluctuations in crude oil price".

Most will travel by auto.

The major highways impacted by this holiday travel will most likely be Interstate 93, Interstate 95, Interstate 495 and Route 3. It can also be streamed on Bloomberg.com and listened to on Bloomberg Radio.
