AAA Estimates Fewer Travelers Over Holiday Weekend

by scrosby on August 28, 2008

It’s likely fewer Americans will travel during the Labor Day weekend compared to last year. AAA estimates more than 34-million people will leave home this holiday weekend. Spokesperson Roger Boyd says that number is just slightly lower than a year ago.

“That’s down less than one-percent total over last year, so that’s good, people have become accustomed to gasoline process and have changed their trips accordingly,” says Boyd.

Boyd says those who choose to take a road trip over the three-day weekend will see higher gas prices, partially because of storm system Gustav in the Caribbean potentially threatening oil refineries on the Gulf Coast.
