Households with one car are getting behind the wheel 4.3% times less often but cutting mileage by 1.8% compared to two years ago, according to the AA’s analysis of new figures from the Department of Transport. The National Travel Survey reveals that households with one car made 43 fewer trips and drove 119 fewer miles in 2010 than in 2008. Those with two or more cars made 26 fewer trips (down 2.4%) and drove 380 fewer miles (down 4.2%) compared to 2008. Edmund King, president of the AA, said: "After the Department for Energy and Climate Change figures revealed that one billion fewer litres of petrol were bought in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the same period in 2008, yet more figures show how badly record fuel prices and recession are taking away people’s mobility."
