Travelers Driving This 4th of July Weekend To Avoid Airport Chaos

Despite the highest 4th of July gas prices on record, 42 million Americans are driving this holiday. The unprecedented number of airline cancelations and delays is causing travelers to choose to drive and fly. Delta, American Airlines and United are all trimming their schedules even further to accommodate staffing shortages, despite passenger levels hitting post-pandemic highs. » Subscribe to NBC News:

  1. Gas is expensive, airlines tickets are ridiculously expensive. Plus that Spirit airlines are the worst. I feel sorry for the people who getting scammed by them. People save your money! We are heading into a recession!

  2. The gov't can end this chaos overnight if they wanted to.

    Ground all commercial passenger aircraft unless it's to get people home to where they live. Going somewhere? Tough. Stay home.

  3. That’s why I drive 4 hours to my cottage up north instead of going somewhere nicer for a July 4th getaway.

  4. only 42m dont we have like over 350 m people

  5. To anybody complaining about the fuel prices, fuel is more expensive all over Europe, and has been for decades. It's just that the US has been gorging on it like it falls from the sky, and people there have oversized (wayyyy oversized) vehicles and drive constantly even to get to the next block. More walking, smaller cars, problem solved.
    Don't thank me, it's a pleasure. Prices are up GLOBALLY not only in your country. °_°

  6. Flying is obsolete, relax in your area. 🌎

  7. In what year USA got their independence?

  8. Is the news anti airline? Trying to scare the people..

  9. Instead of paying high price and delay of air travel, pack the whole family into a nice comfy SUV and hit the road instead of flying. Flying is just not worth the trouble and money. In case of delay or traffic in the road way at least there choices of relief to get off the road and get some ice cold drink or ice cream to sooth the pressure. SMART TRAVELLERS Go…GO..GO…

  10. There are alternative flying options that most people dont consider. smaller private chartered flights that operate out of smaller private airports. The flights can be more expensive but your getting where you need to go only a tad bit slower in some cases. This is how entertainers and vip's travel.

  11. getting to normal they would think they would fly on airplanes back to normal People are just stupid having cancelled flights to get a hotel or Motel

  12. Personally, nothing sounds better than to relax at home this holiday weekend.

  13. What's the over/under on road rage shootings?

  14. Staying my butt home is the perfect 4th of July. My B-Day is tomorrow. I’ll be 28.

  15. Why cant anyone enjoy 4th of July in their community pool or park instead of going to Miami, California, Cabo, etc and be in more debt.
