Americans will travel to celebrate Labor Day, AAA says

AAA predicts 34 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles to celebrate Labor Day this year. That's up more than four percent over last year -- and the highest level since 2008. AAA credits an improving economy, increased consumer spending and the recovering housing market.  Another factor that may affect the increase is the date.  Labor Day this year is Monday September 2. Americans have shown a higher inclination to travel when the holiday falls earlier in the month.
