RICHMOND, Virginia — More Virginians are expected to travel this Labor Day weekend, reaching a new post-recession high for the state.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says that the number of people taking a trip at least 50 miles away from home is anticipated to increase slightly this year.

That's more than 964,300 Virginians traveling during the Thursday through Monday holiday weekend.

The majority of Virginians are expected to travel by car and gas prices have brought a welcome relief to motorists. Prices in Virginia are down about 4 percent per gallon compared with the same time last year.

Motorists are being reminded to buckle up and drive sober and distraction-free while traveling for the upcoming holiday.
