AAA predicts more people expected to travel over Labor Day weekend 2013

More Americans plan to travel at least 50 miles to celebrate the upcoming Labor Day weekend.

AAA predicts 34-million Americans will take trips this year. That is an increase of more than four percent over last year and the highest level since 2008.

Labor Day falls on Sept. 2 this year and according to AAA, people have shown a higher inclination to travel when the holiday falls earlier in the month.

AAA also credits the increase in travel to an improving economy, more people willing to spend money and a recovering housing market.
