Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of the year, both on the roads and in the air.

ABC News took a look at this year's Thanksgiving travel by the numbers.

The TSA expects a "record-breaking" 26.8 million passengers nationwide - about a 4% increase from 2018.

Wednesday, November 27 is the worst time for travelers to take to the roads, according to INRIX, an international transportation analytics company.

The company estimates that trips could take up to four times longer during the peak time of Wednesday afternoon.

Winter weather is also causing delays to holiday travel, as winter storms pound several areas of the country.

Here is a link to the current air travel conditions across the nation.
