Tight economy forces some to stay home for Thanksgiving

November 26, 2009

CHICAGO - Millions of Americans are spending the holiday at home, saying the poor economy has made it unaffordable to hit the road or board a plane. Nearly 38 million people are expected to take trips this year, slightly more than last year but 20 million fewer than in 2005 when the economy was better, according to AAA auto club. Air travel is expected to drop 6.7 percent this holiday compared with last year, AAA said.
