So I saw $1.99 gas at an Arco station the other day, making me think that people might start driving more.

Well, they might be buying more gas, but they aren’t driving more miles, notes Calculated Risk:


As the authors note, gas was still $3.50/gallon in September, so maybe driving will take off again next month. Somehow I doubt it. I wonder if WSDOT will revise their ever-rising estimates and eventually stop ignoring human behavior.
