Record number of travelers will hit the roads this Labor Day weekend

HARTFORD, Conn. – Those taking advantage of falling gas prices and filling up their tanks over the next few days for the holiday weekend likely will have lots of company.

With holiday weekend gas prices the lowest they have been in more than a decade, more people nationwide plan to travel for Labor Day than have in recent years, according AAA figures released Tuesday.

An estimated 35.5 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles from home over the upcoming Labor Day weekend — between Thursday and Monday — up 1 percent from last year. It’s the highest number of travelers for Labor Day since 2008, according to AAA.
