Motor vehicle travel on all U.S. roads rose again in July to continue a streak of setting ever-higher record volume levels with every new monthly report.

The Federal Highway Administration in its latest “Traffic Volume Trends” report said motorists drove 2.2 billion more vehicle miles in July than in the same month last year, for a 0.8 percent gain over July 2016.

And for the first seven months of 2017 the FHWA said vehicle miles traveled increased by 1.5 percent, after setting an all-time annual high in 2016.
