It looks like most of Michigan will enjoy a warm, sunny Labor Day holiday weekend. Many Michiganders plan to go somewhere to enjoy it.

AAA Michigan predicts 1.2 million people in Michigan will travel more than 50 miles during the holiday weekend. That would make this the busiest Labor Day weekend travel-wise since 2008.  

AAA credits an improving labor market, rising personal income and increasing consumer spending with the boost in holiday weekend travel. 

Nine in 10 plan to drive. GasBuddy.com reports gas prices are more than a dollar lower compared to this same time last year.
