Labor Day weekend may have been the final long weekend of summer, but fall offers many opportunities to get away, and usually at lower prices. Here's our Consumer Watch. Beach season may be drawing to a close, but fall offers plenty of opportunities to hit the road or take to the skies, without the crowds, and without the peak price tags. According to Trip Advisor, top fall destinations include New York, Boston, Orlando, Las Vegas and San Francisco. Two east coast cities top that list, in a region where fall foliage is a prime attraction. There's good news for driver hoping to take a tour of the changing leaves. Drivers got relief during the long holiday weekend with the cheapest Labor Day weekend gas prices since 2010, according to GasBuddy.com. And prices should drop even lower in late September, when gas stations stop selling the more expensive summer blends at the pumps. Gas Buddy expects the national average to bottom out between $3.15 and $3.25 per gallon later this year, and that average is bumped higher by higher gas prices on the west coast. Those east of the Rockies could even see prices dip below $3 per gallon. In the skies, fall is a shoulder season, at least until airlines get close to the Thanksgiving rush. It's never too early to eye those holiday fares, even if you think it seems way too early. Those seats really do fill up fast.
