AAA: 1.6 Million In New England Will Travel Over Holiday

The thought of one more road trip before winter is inspiring more New England residents to travel during the Labor Day holiday weekend.

TSM

AAA says about 1.6 million New England residents, or about 11.3 percent of the population, will travel 50 miles or more from home during the weekend. That represents a three percent increase over last year, just slightly ahead of the national forecast of 2.9 percent.

AAA Southern New England says the increase appears to reflect the nation’s continued slow and steady economic recovery. Travelers began trekking out of their homes as early as Thursday in an effort to beat the holiday travel crowd. Recent employment data shows the New England labor market has seen modest improvements, encouraging slightly more travel this Labor Day weekend. (AP)
