WOODBURY - People are hitting the roads this holiday weekend.

According to AAA, the number of Americans traveling over the Labor Day weekend will be at its highest level since the recession. About 34 million people are expected to take a trip by either car, bus, rail or plane.

Friday marked the busiest travel day for the long weekend, with 46 percent of travelers making their getaway.

Meanwhile, AAA says the price of a gallon of regular gasoline rose nearly two cents overnight. It is the biggest increase in six weeks.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas on Long Island is now $3.90. Prices are down 27 cents from last Labor Day.

For those who wish to avoid traffic, the LIRR will be operating on a holiday schedule Monday.
