Pleasant surprise: Gas prices down for holiday
It's a 'tank-toppers delight' for U.S. motorists this Labor Day
LOS ANGELES - More Americans are expected to travel over the upcoming Labor Day weekend than last year as fuel prices slip from their recent highs, the American Automobile Association said Thursday.
AAA estimated that 35.2 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home this holiday, up 1.2 percent from last year.
"This is the first time I think in recent memory that I have ever seen gasoline prices go down before the holiday," said Phil Flynn, energy analyst for Alaron Energies. "It's going to be a tank-toppers delight."
guess we can all go and get our kicks on route 66 or somthing this labor day
