The American Automobile Association (AAA) is projecting that 34.7 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home during the Labor Day holiday weekend. This number represents the highest number of travelers since 2008 and a 1.3 percent increase over last year.
Nearly 86 percent of travelers (29.7 million) will celebrate the holiday with a final road trip before summer comes to a close and children head back to school.
The Labor Day holiday travel period is defined as Thursday, August 28 to Monday, September 1.
Automobile travel will increase by 1.4 percent this year, with 29.7 million travelers hitting the road. Nearly 8 percent of travelers (2.65 million) will travel by air, a 1 percent increase from last year.
With most U.S. consumers paying the lowest gas prices for early August since 2010, AAA expects gas prices to have little impact on the number of people traveling for Labor Day, though lower prices could help make travel more affordable.
