ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) This is the day before Thanksgiving, and that means millions of Americans will be packing up and hitting the road today to spend a long holiday weekend with family and friends.

Triple-A's Thanksgiving 2012 Travel Forecast is predicting holiday travel to increase about seven-tenths of one-percent over last Thanksgiving.

Fourty-three-point-six million Americans will travel for the holiday this year. Ninety-percent of them will do so by motor vehicle, and when they fill up the gas tank, they'll find gas prices generally in a range between $3.25 and $3.40 a gallon.
