If you’re planning to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday this week, fewer of your fellow Californians will be taking to the roads and the skies alongside you.

According to a survey from the American Automobile Association’s Northern California chapter, as reported by CBS San Francisco, more than 5.1 million Californians will travel 50 or more miles for the holiday, which is a drop of 4 percent from last year. The survey also indicated that 4.6 percent fewer people will travel by car this Thanksgiving, and 4.9 percent fewer will fly.

While the overall numbers are down from last year, travel projections are still above where they were in 2008 and 2009, when the recession was likely impacting the ability to travel.
