It appears that between the rising cost of fuel and the PITA (Pain In The....) factor people are finally starting to drive less. A Reuter's article
cites Department of Transportation statistics which show a reduction 4.3 percent reduction in the miles driven in March of 2008 compared to March of 2007.
The same article goes on to say that gasoline use has slipped about 1 percent this year compared to last. Well, that's a start. If this trend keeps on going perhaps we'll one day have articles like this
about post-car life in the US.
