Will you be shopping for a new car this Labor Day weekend?

Will you be shopping for a new car this Labor Day weekend?

The Labor Day holiday in this country traces its roots all the way back to the early 1880s, and as you’d expect, celebrations have changed plenty since then. Today, more than a century after it first became a federal holiday, in 1894, Labor Day has become a time to say “goodbye” to summer, “hello” to a new school year, and “let’s go shopping” to retailers. In fact, some sources say that the holiday has become the second-biggest shopping day of the year (after Black Friday, of course).

What do Autobytel readers say? Exactly half plan on shopping for a new car over Labor Day Weekend, with another 7 percent or so still undecided.
