IRVING (AP) - A travel group predicts 2.4 million Texans will leave home for Labor Day weekend in spite of potential weather threats by Hurricane Isaac.

AAA Texas offered its holiday weekend forecast for people heading 50 miles or more from home from Thursday through Monday. The estimate came Tuesday as Isaac was upgraded to a hurricane off the Louisiana coast.

AAA Texas expects about 4.3 percent more people to travel this Labor Day weekend period compared to a year ago.

The association says the anticipated increase comes despite the sluggish economy and recent higher gasoline prices. AAA spokeswoman Rhona Wilson says consumer confidence has improved since last year and Texans have an unwavering desire to travel.
