Over 41M Americans on the Road July 4th Weekend
July 2, 2019—Almost half of adult Americans plan to go on a road trip, according to the Invest in You Spending survey conducted by CNBC.
The survey findings correspond to recent projections from the American Automobile Association (AAA) for the upcoming July 4th weekend, which forecasts that a vast majority of the nearly 49 million travelers who plan to travel—41.4 million—will hit the road, the most on record for the holiday and 4.3 percent more than last year.
It predicts drivers will experience the greatest amount of congestion on Wednesday, July 3, as commuters mix with holiday travelers.
Only 21 percent say their summer travel plans include domestic air travel, while only about 1 in 10 Americans (9 percent) expressed plans to fly internationally during their summer vacation.
The national survey of 2,800 Americans was conducted June 17–20 by CNBC and Acorns in partnership with SurveyMonkey.
