TSA in 2008: "Thanksgiving travel projected to decrease." What will they say now?

Two years ago, the TSA's official blog announced a projected decrease in Thanksgiving holiday travel because of the bad economy:
This Thanksgiving season will be the first time that the Air Transport Association of America (ATA) has projected a decrease in holiday passenger traffic since 2001. Higher fuel prices combined with reduced consumer spending have led to a projected 10% drop in the number of passengers and flights in the 12-day period spanning November 21 (Friday before) through December 2 (Tuesday after), as compared to the same period in 2007.
If airline bookings decrease during this year's holiday season, what will the TSA attribute that to?
