PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Starting Saturday, AAA projects nearly 2 million Arizonans will travel for year-end holidays.

The average Arizona traveler will go 1,038 miles and spend about $694.

Nationally, more than 93 million people will pack the roads, airports, train stations and bus terminals.

Winter weather in the Midwest and East Coast has forced dozens of flights to be canceled or delayed.

The Federal Aviation Administration said flights arriving at La Guardia Airport in Queens, NY, on Friday morning were delayed, on average, nearly three hours each.

The travel projections come from IHS Global Insight which conducts special research for AAA.
