BILLINGS -

Thinking about heading out of town for Thanksgiving -- it is one of the biggest travel holidays of the year.

A TripAdvisor survey found 39% of you plan to travel this year for turkey day. That's up from 32% last year.

The largest percentage, 27%, plan to leave on Wednesday.

With gas prices dropping, nearly 6 out of 10 will drive. Course 7 our 10 people admit they are stressed out by Thanksgiving travel.

One other travel tidbit almost half say they plan to take a Black Friday shopping trip.
