Tampa, FL – Low gas prices influenced what AAA forecasts to be the most Labor Day motorists to take a road trip in seven years. The average price for gasoline was the lowest on the holiday in 11 years.
“These low gas prices likely influenced many Americans to take a last minute road trip,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Motorists are saving between $15.00-$25.00 every time they go to the pump, and those savings could get even bigger. Labor Day marks the end of the busy summer travel season, which means gas demand will decline as fewer people take road trips. As a result, gas prices in the autumn and winter seasons could be the cheapest of the year.”

Clarksville, TN – It seems like only a few days ago that we celebrated the beginning of summer and here we are reaching the end with the Labor Day holiday. We’ve accomplished a great deal over the past few months and I want to thank the Clarksville City employees for all they have done, and continue to do, to make our city great.
I am reminded of a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” I believe the people of Clarksville understand and illustrate this sentiment every day.

Tampa, FL – More Americans will be traveling this weekend than they have any Labor Day weekend since 2008. Since most of those travelers will be doing so by car, a significant danger is created when you add impaired drivers celebrating the last holiday weekend of the summer.
AAA and Bud Light ask anyone celebrating with alcohol to plan ahead. That means using a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for a sober ride home such as a taxi or a ride-share program.
