Labor Day travel forecast: Fewer Americans on the move

Travel this Labor Day holiday could be less stressful for the millions of Americans hitting the roads or heading to the airport, as fewer of us are doing it this year -- lots fewer.

Forecasts call for just 39 million vacationers to jump in the car and head to the hills or the beach. That's 13 percent fewer than last year when 45 million Americans embarked on a Labor Day trip of 50 miles or more, according to projections by AAA, compiled by IHS Global Insight.
