Labor Day Weekend Travel in Virginia

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. – Labor Day weekend is right around the corner, and the state is expecting more Virginians to travel.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the number of people taking a trip at least 50 miles away from home is expected to go up two percent this year. That equates to nearly 950,000 Virginians traveling between Thursday and Labor Day Monday, which is a nine percent increase since the end of the recession in 2009.

Most Virginians are expected to travel by car. As for cost, AAA anticipates the total cost to be $946 for those traveling, which is up $120.

However, gas prices in Virginia look good for the end of summer.  Prices in the state are down about seven percent per gallon compared with this same time last year.
