OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — The highest number of Californians since the recession is expected to travel over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

The Ventura County Star reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1zQNphE ) that The Automobile Club of Southern California estimates that nearly 4 million travelers are expected to hit the roads statewide.

That would be a year-over-year increase of about 2 percent.

But it is still far below the record-high 5.2 million California residents who traveled over the three-day weekend in 2008.
