Kansas Thanksgiving Travel Increases Again

The number of Kansans travelling this Thanksgiving holiday should outpace the national average. And, gasoline should be cheaper this year. The price of gas here in the Midwest has fallen 41 cents in the last month and is 6 cents lower than last Thanksgiving. Even so, travellers will still shell out a lot of money this week. Jim Hanni (HAY-nee) is a spokesman for Triple-A Kansas.

National Thanksgiving travel hit a low in 2008, falling nearly 2 percent, but has slowly increased since then.
