Travel on the U.S. roadways increased by 0.4 percent from June 2011 to June 2012, an increase of 1.1 billion miles, according to the latest report from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The increase in miles driven is notably smaller than May's increase of 2.3 percent, but still continues the upward trend in 2012.

As of June, cumulative travel for 2012 has increased by 1.1 percent as compared to 2011 reports. Regionally, June vehicle travel declined in the West and North-East regions. The South-Gulf, like last month, had the largest gain in miles driven, increasing by 1.9 percent from June of last year. (see chart below for details on all regions).
