Cheaper gas, warmer winters and more cars on the road mean that Americans are driving more, with total numbers set to top 3 trillion this year for the first time since 2007 and only the second time in history.
Over the past few years, it has become generally accepted wisdom that the Millennial generation cares less about cars and drives less than the generations of Americans that came before them. However, a recent dig into one dataset by The Atlantic's Citylab blog finds that assertion might not be entirely accurate.
