The number of Americans hitting the road this Thanksgiving is expected to increase slightly from a year ago.

AAA released its annual holiday travel forecast Tuesday morning. It says a dramatic drop in gas prices should help holiday travel.

AAA predicts 43.6 million people will drive or fly at least 50 miles from home over Thanksgiving, up just seven-tenths of a percent from last year.
