AAA predicts more than 54 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles away this Thanksgiving. That's almost a 5 percent increase from last year.

With more planes, trains and automobiles in use, the company says travel times could be as much as four times longer than a normal trip in the most congested cities in America.

To break down the AAA projection: 48.5 million people are expected to take a road trip, more than 4 million travelers will hop on a plane — and about 1.5 million will use a train, bus or cruise ship.

The company says it hasn't seen this many people headed home for the holiday since 2005.
