Labor Day Could Be the Best Time to Travel

The internet is the modern day version of the Town Crier so spread the word! The big news today is that Labor Day 2010 is gearing up to be the best travel time in a long time. A timeshare rental for your Labor Day holiday vacation is a great way to have budget accommodations, and the current drop in oil prices will give you budget-friendly gas prices as well.

The auto club, AAA, reports that more people will be traveling this weekend, an 11 percent increase from a year ago. And most of you who will be going by car will travel more than 50 miles from home.

"The last two years were pretty dismal," AAA spokeswoman Cynthia Harris stated. "But a good sign is that people are traveling more and that's because there is some optimism that we haven't seen in quite a while."

Families are finally catching a break on gasoline prices. Fuel is at its second-lowest level in five years, and some economists predict that it could drop much further in the months ahead said Harris.

The main reason for the price drop has been the huge run-up in domestic petroleum inventories. U.S. crude oil supplies are at the highest level for August in nearly 20 years, and total petroleum stocks, including gas and other products, are at their highest level since January 1983, reported the U.S. Energy Department.

People traveling by air this Labor Day may have the greatest concerns. As Hurricane Earl charges up the Atlantic, airport delays could stretch from New York to California. "Stay in touch with your carriers," said Michael McCarron, a spokesman at San Francisco International. "With possible hurricane action on the East Coast, weather could come into play."

The smart thing to do is to toss the kids in the car and motor on down the road. You'll be able to enjoy great Labor Day activities and events just about anywhere you find timeshare rentals. The caveat of driving, of course, is the amount of holiday traffic on the roads. This is where your timeshare rental shows itself as the perfect accommodations. You can stay the full week, relax, have fun, and drive back home well after the clog of Labor Day traffic on Monday and Tuesday has disappeared.
