The latest AAA survey finds more than 5.3 million Californians plan to travel 50 miles or more this holiday weekend.

"We are seeing a surge of travel this year on Thanksgiving. We have an expected 4.1% increase from last year."

AAA's Cynthia Harris says most of those people, 4.5 million of them, will be driving.

"Air travel is also expected to increase from last year despite a 20% jump in fares. The lowest round-trip rate is projected to be around $212."

Harris says 620,000 Californians will be flying. That's a 2% increase over last year.

She says most of the people traveling will stay with family or friends. But for people staying at a hotel, rates are expected to be 6% higher this year with an average price of $145 a night.
