Gas prices this Labor Day weekend are expected to be the lowest they’ve been in over a decade

file0001239270346Labor Day weekend is traditionally the third most traveled holiday of the summer. Officials say over one million Michiganders are expected to hit the roads this weekend.

Susan Hiltz is the Public Affairs Director for AAA Michigan.

“In Michigan we’re looking at our average right now is at $2.35 which is just a penny less than it was last year so gas prices are relatively low.”

Caution is recommended when driving this weekend. Hiltz says traffic fatalities doubled from 2014 to 2015 Labor Day weekend.

She says she expects gas prices to drop after Labor Day due to school starting and people not vacationing as often.
