Labor Day Weekend Black Bean Burger Recipe

Labor Day weekend is rapidly approaching, and we all know what that means. Crowded airports and congested highways.

It’s estimated that 25 percent of Americans will go out of town at some point over the weekend. The Friday prior to Labor Day could be the busiest travel day of the year.

Of those 25 percent, 86 percent will travel by automobile. And they’ll notice that gas prices have gone up. Probably by more than 20 percent. About 7 percent of Americans will arrive at their destination via airplane.

Among the most popular Labor Day destinations are New York City, Las Vegas, Orlando, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Best and worst times to drive

In 2017, Americans drove more than 75 million miles over Labor Day weekend. And used more than 3.5 million gallons of gasoline.

States that typically have the highest volume of traffic on their roadways over this weekend are California, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Friday afternoon on Labor Day weekend is the worst time to be on the road. So, get an early start if you’re leaving for your destination that day.

As far as returning is concerned, start home before noon on Monday if possible. Traffic will peak around 3 p.m. that day.

More than 130 million will cook out

Many travelers will enjoy backyard barbeques after arriving safely at their destinations.

In fact, it’s estimated that 133 million Americans will take part in a cookout over the weekend.

If you’re traveling to a family or friends’ cookout, you’ll probably eat whatever they serve. But if you’re the host, you’ll be the one deciding what people will devour.

There are plenty of great Labor Day cookout ideas. Including brisket, ribs and salmon. Plus vegetable kebabs, potato salad and steaks, And, of course, burgers, brats and hot dogs.
