SHERMAN, TX -- By plane, train, and especially automobile, people started heading to their Thanksgiving destinations.

AAA Texas predicts 3.3 million Texans will travel from Wednesday through Sunday, with most of those driving. With more cars on the roads than normal, troopers say it is important for drivers to be careful.

One way to stay safe is to avoid the distraction of talking on a cell phone while you head down the highway. "If you have an emergency call, pull off to the side of the road, and talk there," says Trooper Mark Tackett. "Everybody needs to be buckled up inside the vehicle, front seat and back seat, and if you're going to drink, don't drive, and try to find a designated driver."

Gas prices dropped two cents, to an average of $3.16 per gallon across Texas. We found gas selling for $3.10 at a Shell station in Sherman.
