As expected, Wisconsinites are driving less.
Miles driven were down over the past year, according to Bruce Aunet of the DOT. He says the decreased by 3.4-percent in Wisconsin, compared to an over six percent drop nationwide.
Aunet says it's likely due to the continued recession, combined with high fuel prices.
The DOT study shows motorists drove six million miles fewer per day on state highways. That's the largest decrease since World War Two.
Aunet says this year's driving so far is on pace with last year. It's not another decline, but not much of an increase either.
