UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin highways will have their busiest Labor Day Weekend since the start of the Great Recession. So says the Triple-“A.”

It estimates that 713,000 Wisconsin residents will travel at least 50 miles one way during the summer’s final holiday. That’s a three-point-four percent increase from last year.

Once they’re away, folks will be spending more.

The Triple-“A” says average airfares are $9 higher than a year ago. Car rental rates are up 32-percent from last Labor Day. Hotel rates are up an average of $7. The one thing that’s cheaper is gas.

A year ago, regular unleaded averaged $3.86-a-gallon in Wisconsin. Today, the state’s Triple-“A” says it’s 33-cents cheaper, at just over $3.53.
