Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and AAA says travel this year will be the highest since the recession began. According to Triple A, 34.1 million people will travel more than 50 miles from their home. That’s an increase this year of 4.2 percent, up from last year’s 32.7 million travelers.

The Labor Day travel weekend runs from August 30 to September 2. Most people will travel by car this year, about 85 percent with nearly half of all travelers hitting the road on Friday, August 30 and returning Monday, September 2.  It’s not completely clear why the travel rate is expected to increase this year because gas prices remain high, although, they are 18 cents cheaper than they were last Labor Day.
