The American Automobile Association (AAA) is projecting that 35.5 million Americans will travel 50 or more miles from home during the coming Labor Day holiday weekend. This number represents the highest travel volume for this holiday period since 2008… and a one percent increase over 2014.

30.4 million of these travelers will do it by car. Over 2.6 million are expected to travel by air, making it the largest volume of air travel for a Labor Day holiday weekend since 2007. The Labor Day holiday weekend is defined as Thursday, September 3 to Monday, September 7.

Falling gas prices have also helped boost the average family’s disposable income, also contributes to the increased numbers this year. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.57. That’s $.86 cents less than the average price per gallon a year ago, and the lowest U.S. average since 2009.
