LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- If you're traveling by car this holiday weekend, be prepared for some busy roads.
Travel experts say nationwide, drivers will be sharing the roads with 34 million other travelers.
There will be about 1.6 million in our region.
That's a two percent increase in Labor Day travel compared to last year.
"People have learned to budget well," said Roger Boyd with AAA. "We know gas prices are going to go up the week of a major travel holiday so people tend to budget a little bit better and they're more prepared for the travel.
AAA recommends getting your car checked before leaving and packing a kit with water and food.
