Over A Million Michiganders Planning a Labor Day Getaway


In Michigan, over 1.12 million people are expected to travel during the Labor Day holiday says AAA Michigan. That’s a nearly one-percent increase compared to last year according to the AAA travel forecast.

Susan Hiltz, Public Affairs Director for AAA Michigan say “the Labor Day holiday is traditionally the last hurrah for summer vacationing in Michigan. Many people are taking advantage of the long weekend as the holiday falls just before the start of the new school year. With our state’s deep roots in the Labor movement, the economy’s modest gains and more Americans joining the labor force, Michiganders have triple the reasons to celebrate.”

Over one million Michiganders plan to travel by auto, while more than 43,000 will travel by air and over 79,000 will go by rail, bus or ship. Of those traveling by car, they will likely pay lower gas prices with average expected to be around $3.43 per gallon compared to $3.52 last year. Costs for airfare and hotels have risen from last year while car rental fees remain flat.
