LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Many Oklahomans are hitting the road or flying the friendly skies Wednesday ahead of Thanksgiving.

About 30% of Oklahomans are hitting the road compared to the nearly 20% from last year, according to AAA.

The main reason the other 70% of people said they weren’t going anywhere was due to gas prices.

For those flying, last Friday and Saturday TSA screened over 4 million people.
