Ahhh, Labor Day, the day where the United States celebrates working by… not working.

Regardless, if you’re headed anywhere during this holiday weekend, at least your wallet won’t be as heavy as your stomach after all that pasta salad.

Energy experts predict lower retail gasoline prices over Labor Day weekend compared to earlier in the summer, just as a greater number of Americans may drive more than 50 miles from home during the three-day holiday. Via Marketwatch

Perfect, that means we can put our extra money toward more kegs.

The average price of gas is hovering around $2.48 per gallon across the U.S., which is actually cheaper than a gallon of premium bottled water.. which is actually really odd.

According to AAA, nearly 31.4 million Americans will drive more than 50 miles from home this holiday weekend, which seems pretty ridiculous since overcooked hamburgers and the holiday trumpeting the end of yet another summer don’t sound like solid reasons to want to drive somewhere, but hey to each their own.

Don’t feel too great about all that money you’re going to save at the pump though, the same MarketWatch report states that unemployment is still going to be around 10%.

Maybe you should be sending out your resume instead of driving to your uncle’s house.

Just sayin.
