AAA Predicts Increase In Holiday Travel

The American Automobile Association projects 400,300 Oklahomans will travel more than 50 miles from home over the upcoming Labor Day holiday, a 3.7 percent increase over last year. Nationwide, 34.1 million Americans will travel over the holiday, AAA predicts, a 4.2 percent increase over last year. A spokesman says the increase is predominantly due to increased consumer spending and the recovering housing market. "For many of us, our home is our biggest asset," said AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai."As home prices improve, more families are feeling more comfortable about traveling."
