Americans Driving Fewer Miles Each Year




Since 2005, Americans have driven fewer miles each year. During all previous recessions, driving fell during the recession and then climbed back upward. During the previous recession, however, the situation changed immensely: driven miles began to decline prior to the recession and sharply declined after recovery started. In other words, this change in driving is likely a long-term trend rather than a recession-related pattern.
