AAA says the number of Americans who travel at least 50 miles from home this holiday weekend will fall more than two percent to about 31 million.

Experts say high unemployment, expensive gas, higher hotel prices, and the hassles of getting a seat on crowded planes are keeping travelers closer to home at a time when families try to squeeze in one last getaway.
