In fact, people are going to be taking 700 million trips over the course of the summer and that’s down about 15% from last year but it’s a still a very significant number,” said John Paul, a Senior Public Affairs Manager for AAA.

Cruises, obviously, people aren’t doing it,” he said. Even air travel is steadily rising. The TSA clocked more than 600,000 passengers through U.S. airports on Monday. However, that is just a fraction of the 2.5 million people who traveled at the same time last year.
