The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently released its 11th monthly report for 2014 on U.S. automobile traffic volumes, which indicates road travel is up 1.1 percent (2.5 billion vehicle miles) at 241 billion vehicle miles traveled (VMT) for November 2014, compared to 238.5 billion VMT in November 2013. Even with a historically bad winter, driving increased throughout the country in 10 of the 11 months of 2014 for which auto data has been collected. Cumulative travel for 2014 has increased by 1.4 percent, or 38.2 billion VMT, in contrast to this time last year. With almost the entire year accounted for, a slight rise in cumulative VMT is expected for the 2014 calendar year. U.S. driving also increased modestly in 2012 and 2013.
