More people in Wisconsin and around the country will be traveling over the river and through the woods this Thanksgiving holiday.

 Triple A says nationally an estimated 38-million people will travel more than 50-miles for Thanksgiving dinner. That's up 3 per cent over last year.

 Pam Moen with Triple A Wisconsin says you can expect to have a lot of company on Wisconsin roads and highways as well. One reason is the price of gas.

The state average this week is $2.32 cents a gallon. But in some parts of the state you can get a gallon for $2.25.

 As always, Triple A's advice is to leave early, avoid the peak driving times and drive safely.

 The state patrol says it will have every available trooper on the roads this holiday looking for speeders and drunk drivers. Fifteen people were killed on state roads and highways last Thanksgiving.
