This year may come to be remembered as the moment the great American road trip made its comeback. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are turning to car-based trips to avoid planes during a time when air travel feels riskier.

In July, The Harris Poll found around two-thirds of Americans say they'll probably be taking more road trips this year to avoid airline travel because of COVID-19. After all, it's easier to control and sanitize the environment in your own vehicle.
