The 1.8% increase in February was the largest annual gain in monthly travel volume since October 2010. Perhaps the increase in traffic volume was due to the mild winter weather this year, or maybe it reflects an economic recovery that is gradually gaining momentum?Editorial Disclosure: Any personal views and opinions expressed by the author in this article are the author's own and do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of GET.com.
