Be prepared for lots of company on Labor Day roads

Expect a busy Labor Day Weekend

Attention U.S. truck drivers: expect to share the roads with a lot more vehicles this long Labor Day weekend.

A whole lot more.

AAA is forecasting some 30.4 million Americans plan to hit the highways on this, the unofficial last hurrah of summer. That’ll make it the busiest Labor Day weekend since 2008, and the fourth straight increase in the number of people traveling, according to AAA.

The “leisure travel and motoring organization,” as AAA calls itself, says improved wages and falling gasoline prices are driving much of the increase in highway travel.
