When it comes to traveling, most Americans would rather pack up the family truckster than fly the friendly skies. A new survey finds 73% of Americans prefer to travel by car versus flying and in fact have no problem of adding additional hours on o their travel time if it meant avoiding the airport altogether. According to the study, air travel was the least liked mode of transportation with most travelers reported that delays (55%) are their biggest flying gripe.  Going through security (50%), and the cramped seats (50%) were tied for the second least enjoyable aspects of air travel. However scenic views (69%) was given as the top reason to travel on the road,  followed by the freedom to stop whenever (69%), and being able to pack whatever you want (57%). Our love affair with the road and freedom is so big that 63% of Americans say they would actually look forward to a trip more if they were road tripping.
