Via LA Times:
Patty Smith, who flew to Los Angeles from Portland, Ore., for a recent vacation, said she saw no empty seats on her Southwest Airlines flight and can’t remember the last time she has had an empty seat next to her on a flight.
“As small as I am, I felt cramped,” said the petite woman as she waited for a taxi from Los Angeles International Airport.
She went home and wrote an angry song about it.

VMT (Vehicle Miles Traveled) up slightly in December relative to last December, but down overall for the year, and below its previous peak now for 49 months. With fuel prices on the rise it doesn’t look like it will break above that for quite some time — if ever.
But what do I know.. People are buying cars again. It’s Halftime in America and “the SUV is back.”

The headline of the article (concerning ‘the Why’) is an editorialization not entirely supported by the facts within it. Interesting.
