AAA estimates that a record 41.1 million Americans will hit the roads, skies and rails for the Fourth of July holiday week: June 29 through July 8. That’s up from 40.8 million travelers a year ago.

The nonprofit travel organization reported that 38 percent of travelers intend to vacation for the entire week this year since Independence Day falls on a Wednesday. It helps that gas prices have fallen by nearly a quarter per gallon in the last four weeks, according to AAA.

AAA’s Leisure Travel Index shows airfares are down about 12 percent compared to Fourth of July 2006. Hotel rates are up 5 percent, while car-rental rates are up 3 percent.

Research is based on a national telephone survey of 1,950 adults by the Travel Industry Association of America, which conducts research for AAA. Click here for more information.
