Labor Day’s Beginnings

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It is observed the first Monday in September.

It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886.

AAA reports Labor Day Gas Prices are Lowest in 11 Years

 

Gas prices should reach $2.00 a gallon by Christmas

AAATampa, 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.”
