AAA says 4.8 million Californians are predicted to travel over the Independence Day holiday…

"…these are the highest numbers we have seen in California since the year 2003."

Cynthia Harris is with AAA of Northern California.
Based on the auto club's latest survey, the number of people traveling will be up 5.2% over last year. Harris says normally when most people leave home they stay with family and friends…but the unusual mid-week holiday has modified that trend.  
"This survey indicates that people will be staying away from home longer and willing to spend a night or two at a hotel and then stay with family and friends, so they're sort of mixing it up."
The AAA survey finds that an average road trip will cover more than 650 miles and a family of four will spend an average of $807 over the holiday.
