Driving on the decline

From my new favorite website, Governing:

Governing wrote:

Young Americans no longer are as devoted to cars as their parents and grandparents once were. The average annual number of vehicle miles traveled by young people (ages 16-34) in the U.S. decreased by 23 percent between 2001 and 2009. It seems more Americans are commuting by public transit. It also seems Americans are buying fewer cars. Yes, auto sales have crept back up since 2008 to more than 14.4 million annually, but that’s still far below the annual average of nearly 17 million cars sold during the nine years leading up to the recession.

Bring it on.
