ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - People are traveling for the holidays and with the new COVID-19 recommendations, traveling becomes a more complicated topic.

Paul Carne, manager of Eco Fuels says his business has been in the family for 53 years. So, he’s seen his fair share of ups and downs over the years. Despite the pandemic, Carne says people are still traveling.

“From talking to people the last few days, people seem to be getting together in smaller groups, having smaller dinners,” said Carne.

Carne also says the COVID-19 restrictions make it a little harder to compare this year to previous years. There’s still an increase in business for the holiday, just not as much.

“Good business right now. Volume, people are moving. People are doing things and getting out, they’re just not going as far or seeing as many people,” said Carne.

TV6′s Escanaba Bureau Reporter Grace Blair visited four different gas stations and the Delta County Airport to try to talk to people about their holiday plans, but no one wanted to comment.

No matter what your plans are for the holiday, there’s always something we can be thankful for.

“Everyone is excited about Thanksgiving and I think we all have a lot to give thanks for this year,” said Carne.
