Gas prices expected to keep more drivers home

Fewer people planning on taking to roads over Labor Day, AAA reports

NEW YORK – Fewer Americans plan to travel by car this Labor Day weekend, AAA says, despite gas prices that are about a dime lower than a year ago.

Still, the overall number of people planning to travel more than 50 miles over Labor Day is expected to rise slightly to 34.6 million, AAA said. The number of people planning to fly this weekend increased to 4.1 million from 4 million one year ago, the survey found, despite record flight congestion and delays.

Separately, the Air Transport Association of America said it expects 15.7 million passengers to fly globally on U.S. airlines from Aug. 29 to Sept. 5, a 2.6 percent increase over the same period last year.
