SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new report from AAA says about 342,000 Utahns will be traveling on Thanksgiving weekend.

AAA expects Thanksgiving travel to rise modestly this year, with an anticipated 1.3 percent increase in the number of Utahns traveling 50 miles or more over the weekend.

Auto travel is expected to be up about 1.2 percent, with about 275,000 Utahns taking to the roads. About 79 percent of overall Thanksgiving travel will be done by car. Over 48,000 people, or about 14 percent, plan on flying to their destinations, a 1 percent increase from AAA's 2006 forecast.
