If you are driving anywhere this Labor Day weekend, you can count on a couple of things for sure: you will be joined by many other drivers and will see more than your usual share of law enforcement officers sharing the road with you. Once again the "Take Back Our Highways" program will be in fill force throughout the state and has already been active in Haleyville for over a week. Thanks to grants, extra officers will be patrolling in search of speeders, people without seatbelts, and drunk drivers.
AAA predicts more people on the roads this weekend than the same time last year, one reason being lowing prices at the pump. The U.S. Enerngy Department announced Wednesday that the average price of gas has fallen to its second-lowest average in five years, $2.68. In Haleyville, the average is $2.43. In Alabama, GasBuddy.com reports the average as $2.48.
