Hurricane Isaac helped to push gasoline prices to new levels going into the Labor Day weekend, but that didn't stop people from traveling.
The average cost of a gallon of gas was $3.83 per gallon, 21 cents higher than last year at this time.
Gas prices jumped 11 cents since August 22, when forecasters first said Isaac would hit the Gulf Coast.
Still, the American Automobile Association reports drivers hit the road in high numbers this weekend.
According to AAA, 28 million drivers drove 50 miles or more this Labor Day weekend, about 300,000 more than last year.
