This year's Labor Day weekend travel volume is expected to be the highest it’s been since the recession began in 2008.  Marie Dodds says Triple A predicts over 5 million people here in the Pacific region will travel at least 50 miles from home, a jump of over 3%.   She says pent-up demand for travel and increasing consumer confidence are driving the predictions.  Even with higher gas prices, the vast majority- 85% will go by car.  However, air travel is also expected to increase over 3.5%, with recent drops in airfares.
