(Wyo.)- Wyomingites Driving Less, But Still More Than Most
A new report says motorists in Wyoming have been driving less.
The report from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund is based on statistics from the Federal Highway Administration.
It finds that Wyoming has both the highest per-capita mileage driven but the sharpest drop in the same mileage over about the last decade.
Drivers hit their peak mileage in 2003, when the average Wyoming motorist drove 18,485 miles. By 2011, that total fell to 16,272 miles, a drop of more than 2,200.
Report author Phineas Baxandall tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle that Wyoming saw the biggest decline in mileage than any other state over the period.
