WOODBURY - With only two days to go before Thanksgiving, many Long Islanders are getting ready to hit the road to get to their holiday destinations.

Gas prices are the highest they've ever been for this time of year, with an average of $3.65 a gallon on the Island, but that's not stopping people from going the distance to be with their families.

About 42.5 million Americans are expected to travel more than 50 miles for the holiday.

Meanwhile, the Long Island Rail Road will be offering 22 extra trains Thursday to help people get to and from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
