AAA Mid-Atlantic projects more than 678,000 Marylanders will travel 50 miles or more during the Labor Day holiday weekend, up 2.7 percent from the 2012 holiday.
This represents the highest travel volume by Marylanders for the Thursday-Monday holiday period since the Great Recession ended in 2009.
“There appears to be pent-up demand by Marylanders to get away for the last summer holiday as many stayed put for the first two major summer holidays,” said AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Ragina C. Averella.
AAA projects 87 percent of traveling Marylanders will use automobiles, 8 percent airlines, and the remaining 5 percent other modes of transportation.-
