Driving is Going Down in the US

As opposed to Canada, where total driving is still going up, driving has gone down in the U.S. in 2007, in what looks like the start of a new downward trend.

The 25-year upward trend suddenly stopped at the end of 2005 when gas prices spiked to $3 a gallon, but what really sealed the downward trend was December 2007, when gasoline went up over $3 a gallon and never came back down.

Data & Graph from OHPI December 2007 spreadsheet. If I may repeat my usual complaint: getting data from US government agencies is simple, getting it from the Canadian governement is not.
