Although Americans drove their vehicles more miles in October 2013 than they did in any of the five previous Octobers, they still drove less this October than they did in October 2007, according to estimates published in the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Traffic Volume Trends (TVT) report.
The last recession hit in December 2007 and lasted until June 2009, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research.
