Holiday travelers gather at the ticket counter at Portland International Airport Friday, May 25, 2012, in Portland, Ore. About 30.7 million people will drive more than 50 miles for Memorial Day trips, according to auto club AAA. That's 400,000 more than last year, a jump AAA attributes to improvement in the economy and consumer attitudes.
