SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utahns are expected to hit the highways this Thanksgiving as gas prices take a significant drop from last month.

Triple-A Utah predicts more than 295-thousand Utah residents will travel 50 miles or more this holiday. They say more than 240-thousand will travel by car and more than 41-thousand will travel by air.

In Utah, drivers may face delays this holiday weekend due to construction. U-D-O-T spokesman Nile Easton says people heading to St. George should prepare for delays on I-15 between Cedar City and Beaver.

Meanwhile, bus and TRAX service will NOT be available on Thanksgiving Day. Service will, however, resume on Friday.

Triple-A says more drivers are on the road on Thanksgiving Day versus any other day. While, Wednesday and Sunday will be the busiest days for those planning to fly.
