More than 400,000 Oklahomans are expected to hit the road over the holiday weekend.
TULSA - AAA projects at least a million more people will travel over Labor Day weekend this year than in 2012.
Roughly 34 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home, a vast majority by car.
Gas prices have jumped in recent days, but prices remain about 30 cents cheaper than a few months ago.
"For many Americans their home is their largest asset and and as prices begin to rise across the country consumers are feeling more confident about planning a vacation," Heather Hunter of AAA said.
AAA expects even more Americans will hit the road during the holidays at the end of the year if this optimistic upward trend continues.
