The Federal Highway Administration said vehicle miles traveled in November on all U.S. roads reached an estimated 253.2 billion VMT, up 4.3 percent from a year earlier and continuing a trend that should make 2015 the heaviest traffic volume year in U.S. history.

For the first 11 months of 2015, the agency said, total U.S. driving reached 2.88 trillion miles, up 3.5 percent from the same point in 2014. That means the pace of VMT growth increased as the year continued, aided by low fuel prices and favorable weather for travel.
