The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently released its first monthly report for 2014 on U.S. automobile traffic volumes which projects a 1.3 percent decline in vehicle miles travelled (VMT) from 2.226 billion miles in 2013 to 2.224 billion miles in January 2014. While January saw a cumulative decline, the western and southern gulf regions saw increases—the two regions not plagued with historically bad weather. ARTBA March 21 sent a memo to Congress and to news outlets explaining overall U.S. economic and employment situations are the primary factors in travel trends and demonstrating that automobile travel has been rebounding in recent years. Read the Memo.
