The Journal of Transportation and Statistics (JTS), released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), reports that Americans have shifted toward a significantly higher use of minivans and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) for personal travel.
The same article in the JTS reports that light-duty trucks, including minivans and SUVs, are driven more miles per year than passenger cars. Additionally, pick-up trucks are more popular among households than they were 20 years ago.
