WEEKEND WORRIES: There will be 320,000 less Americans traveling over Labor Day weekend, according to AAA Chicago. Approximately 28.64 million Americans expect to travel by automobile, a 1.1% decrease from the 28.97 million people who drove to their holiday destinations last year. Almost 3.96 million Americans intend to travel by airplane, a 4.5% decrease from the 4.14 million people who flew last year. 

Once Labor Day weekend is over and people start going back to work and school, transportation will pick up. How much? Nobody knows for sure, but some operators and coachbuilders are starting to see things pick up a bit now and have hope for the future.
