Are You Driving Less? You're Not Alone

Here's good news from This Week in Petroleum, that invaluable product of the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration: "Declines in U.S. Petroleum Consumption Expected to Continue."

Here's a quote:

If you feel like you’ve been economizing by driving less and adjusting your thermostat more, you’re not alone. Total U.S. petroleum consumption reported in today’s Weekly Petroleum Status Report (WPSR) is once again lower than the same week last year. Average monthly total petroleum consumption has now declined for 12 consecutive months when compared with the same month the year before.

It's good news because lessened demand will result in continued lower fuel prices.
