No coherent explanation for the way the years are labeled across the bottom however.

Notice anything weird about this VMT chart (other than its unusual downward trend that is)? I never noticed it before..

How Reliable Are the D.O.T.’s VMT Numbers?

I have no idea. Just throwing that out there as a question.

I do know that quantifying the total amount of driving that has occurred on “all roads” by an entire population is necessarily a dark art, prone to wild extrapolations.

Currently not falling off a cliff, according to DOT.

VMT still busted

The latest govt. numbers. April ’12 down a little over April ’11. 53 months and counting.



Vehicle Miles Traveled up slightly in February

+ 1.8% Over Feb. 2011…

Moving 12-month total.

49 Months

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.”
