    You make several good points here. I certainly agree that a projection of miles driven (or anything else for that matter) in 2035 is meaningless at best. The other thing I note is that the projection numbers assume flat then increasing miles/driver. Milennial cohort studies I’ve seen seem to indicate that younger consumers are not tied to their vehicles the way more (ahem) mature groups are. Couple this with growing work from home/virtual office arrangements and we could see driving decline. The other thing you might want to look at is miles per vehicle. After new car sales dropped in 2009, total registrations fell and miles per vehicle actually grew (though only back close to 2007 levels). Now that new car sales are reviving miles/vehicle will probably decline.
    Good stuff, thanks for posting.

      Nicholas, thanks for these comments! I will see what I can dig up on miles per vehicle. Thanks again for the feedback! Best, Justin
